Valued for being little externally altered and making a positive contribution to the surrounding streetscape. Sorisdale Cottage is recognised as one of the best surviving examples in Callander of a single storey building probably dating from the late 18th century.
The cottage is 3-bay, rectangular-plan with a small outshot to the rear. The principle (SE) elevation comprises a door to the centre with flanking windows at eaves. Both side gables are blank (NE, SW), as is the rear (NW) elevation. There is a rear door set in the re-entrant angle of the outshot. Admission was not obtained to the interior at the time of the resurvey (2004).
Random rubble 'pudding stone' with smeared pointing. Timber twin-leaf door with modern timber windows. Steeply pitched grey slate roof with modern plastic ventilators and modern rooflights to rear. Coped ashlar gable apex stack to SW with single can.
It should be noted that much of the original building stock of Callander would have resembled this simple cottage, however the majority were altered/heightened or demolished in the 19th century. The 1st edition Ordnance Survey map shows a line of continuous buildings reaching towards the Main Street, it is unknown when these were demolished, it is probable however they were similar to Sorisdale Cottage.
