Later 19th century. 2-storey and attic, 3-bay former Temperance Hotel (now in domestic use). The house is gabled, has a central pilastered doorpiece, 2 canted dormer windows with piended roofs, and a later 2-storey bathroom/scullery addition to the rear. Fenestration is regular to the front, and fairly regular to the rear; there are no windows in the gables. The doorpiece has stop-chamfered pilasters supporting a corniced architrave. The windows have stop-chamfered margins. This building has considerable presence on the streetscape because of its exposed N gable. Its former use as a temperance hotel gives the building additional historical interest.

Interior: curved timber stair with decorative cast-iron balusters and mahogany hand-rail. Timber panelled interior doors throughout.

Materials: 2-leaf timber panelled front door with fanlight. 4-pane glazing in timber sash and case windows to rear; non-traditional uPVC windows to front. Squared, stugged, snecked sandstone to principal elevation with polished sandstone ashlar doorpiece. Random local rubble to sides and rear with sandstone window margins; gables harled. Coped wallhead stacks with short clay cans. Graded grey slate.

Statement of Interest

When the Callander and Oban Railway opened in 1870 Strathyre became a popular tourist destination and accommodation was in great demand. The Temperance Movement was very popular through the Victorian Period and Temperance Hotels were commonly found in most Scottish towns and villages and provided quiet accommodation to middle class families.
