John Allan was a local Stirling architect who was active in the Doune area. No 56 is a quirky design, included for group value with its neighbour and its distinctive Allanglazing pattern. The property can be accessed at the rear from Park Lane. It is prominently sited opposite Kilmadock Parish Church.
