Description

1840. Well-detailed, ashlar, Gothic monument to Janet Jardine, wife of George Home Drummond of Blair Drummond and mother of John George Home Drummond of Millearne. Stepped base to tall square pedestal with inscriptions and diagonal buttresses, moulded base to octagonal shaft with late Gothic capital surmounted by large cross; about 4.5 metres (15') high.

Statement of Interest

B group with Stable Block, Walled Garden with Formal Terraced Garden, South Gate and Ice House.

An important and integral part of the estate buildings at Millearne, this interesting well-detailed monument is sited a short distance to the SW of the Walled Garden on raised ground overlooking the River Earn. It appears on the 1st edition Ordnance Survey map as 'Cenotaph' and is strategically positioned at the western edge of Millearne's designed landscape. The monument would have been a prominent feature of the circular river bank walk with the now demolished Millearne House attributed to R & R Dickson together with John George Home Drummond, begun in 1821, on higher ground to the north. Scotland was slow to adopt the new Tudor Gothic style with few earlier examples than Millearne.
