Statement of Interest

B-Group with the Old Stables, Sundial, Walled Garden and N Lodge (see separate list descriptions). A well detailed earlier 20th century lodge. A smaller previous lodge (of which this could be a substantial remodelling) appears on the 1861 OS map. The Ballindalloch estate/house appears on Edgar's map (1745, published 1777). It later became the home of Robert Dunmore, who built a cotton mill in Balfron in 1790. In 1868 the original house was demolished and rebuilt. It was largely demolished in the late 1960's and only a small section now remains intact as 'Ballindalloch'.
