Statement of Interest

B group with Stable Block, Walled Garden with Formal Terraced Garden and Font, Ice House and Monument.

The South Gate of Millearne House is a fine survival prominently sited overlooking the separately listed Kinkell Bridge of circa 1793 and the River Earn, and close to the Old Toll House on the main Crieff to Auchterarder route. The well-detailed gateway formerly incorporated a single storey lodge to the east and a gabled room with corbelled tripartite window above the archway itself.

The high quality detail at the South Gate reflects the Tudor Gothic estate style at Millearne and it was probably designed by R & R Dickson who are thought to have designed the now demolished Millearne House which was begun in 1821. The Tudor Gothic style is also seen at the fine Stable Block, Formal and Walled Gardens and Ice House, all separately listed.

Early Gate Lodges were often simple boxes, but the type 'became significant from the early 19th century and occasionally rose to become a work of significant architectural importance'. Here at Millearne the estate Gothic is reflected at its main entrance, as at other early 19th century examples. Although on a grander scale, the lodge at Taymouth Castle is a comparative design.
