Part of a row of largely 18th century houses, rescued from near demolition in the 1950's. The row is very important in terms of Dunblane's townscape and the setting of the cathedral. Formerly there were rows of cottages on either side of Kirk St. Those running along the churchyard were demolished in the late 19th century. An old photograph shows that the openings have been altered in the house to the S; 2 entrances are shown to the right of the ground floor with a window in between. The N house appears to have been altered/reconstructed around the mid 19th century. It's deeper width and lean-to extension to the rear (E) are not shown on the 1st edition OS Map. The row of former houses was opened as the Scottish Churches House, an ecumenical meeting house and conference centre in 1960.
