Statement of Interest

William Stirling (1772-1838) was born in Dunblane and later built Holmehill House (demolished) as his own residence in the Tudor or Jacobean style of James Gillespie Graham and William Burn, similar to Cambusnethan House (see separate listing). For a complete list of works by Stirling, the majority of which were in his native Stirling and Perthshire, see Colvin, p 926.
