Perhaps the best preserved and maintained house of its type in the Braeport, typifying the burgh architecture of this area of Dunblane. The Braeport was the main street in Dunblane in the 16th century, leading to the town's northern gate, the Overport. The houses in the Braeport were the largest in Dunblane prior to the demise of the church's wealth in the 18th century, belonging primarily to church dignitaries. Whilst one or two such larger, early houses remain, possibly once connected with the church, the majority of the Braeport was rebuilt in the 19th century as smaller houses and cottages.
