Statement of Interest

Dalliotfield is a fine example of a simple Classical manse sited on the outskirts of Muthill to the north east. Retaining its finely-proportioned principal elevation complete with lying-pane glazing the building appears largely as it would when first built. Despite internal and external alterations the basic plan form can be easily recognised. These alterations include the bowed bay to the SW and extensions to the NW, rear elevation. Internally the late 20th century pedimented door to the north east of the stairhall was inserted in a buffet arch within the easternmost room, with the flanking doorways being blocked at the same time. Ground floor fireplaces are replacements. The 1st edition Ordnance Survey map shows formal gardens to the west.

According to The Free Church Annals the congregation at Muthill was formed immediately after the Disruption of 1843, and the 'Church and manse were soon erected'. Although the external appearance of Dalliotfield is in accordance with its mid 19th century date the current owner (2007) understands that the building is a converted farmhouse of circa 1750.
