Statement of Interest

Menteith House is situated to the N of Port of Menteith Parish Church (see separate list description) in the heart of the small hamlet of Port of Menteith. Dating from the late 18th century, it is much extended and aggrandised and it ceased to function as the manse in 1958.

Rev. William MacGregor Stirling (1771-1833), author of Notes, Historical & Descriptive, on the Priory of Inchmahome (1815) was minister at Port of Menteith and lived at the manse. He appears to have been a relation of the architect William Stirling I of Dunblane (1772-1838) and figures in his will. William Stirling I carried out many commissions in the area, including the Graham of Gartmore Mausoleum in Port of Menteith Churchyard (see separate list description). According to David Walker, the quatrefoil gatepiers to the entrance were designed by William Stirling. He also altered the manse at a cost of 90 pounds (Walker 1972, 46).
