Description

Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park Planning Authority

Consisting of 3 separate properties, Station House is a 2-storey 3-bay L-plan house with a lower 2-storey rear service wing and later alterations and additions. Although in its present form it is likely to date from the mid to late 19th century it is possible that it contains earlier fabric. Its overhanging eaves and timber bargeboarding are characteristic of the local Breadalbane style. Less common is the lined-out render and segmental windowheads. The segmental windowheads give the building a distinctive presence and are characteristic of railway architecture. The survival here of traditional glazing is now a rarity in Killin. Station House is of interest not only for its architectural design, but also for its eponymous connection with Killin's now demolished station (see Notes).

The principal elevation faces West and has a central door. The first floor windows to the outer bays break the eaves and have pitched roof gables. A further entrance opening has been created to the ground floor right. To the North and South elevations are monopitch single storey sections with entrances. To the rear (East) elevation a modern non-traditional flat-roofed timber dormer is located in the re-entrant angle. There is a stack on the North gable.

INTERIOR

Partly seen (2004). Modernised.

MATERIALS

Lined-out render predominantly to West, North and South elevations, harled to rear. Graded slate roof. Mostly timber sash and case windows, 2-pane over 4-pane.

Statement of Interest

Station House appears on the 1st edition Ordnance Survey map and it is possible that the building was remodelled to meet the needs of the new railway station at Killin itself in 1886.
