Old Auchentroig, Buchlyvie

Door open days

14 September 2019

Stirling

This is a very rare opportunity for a

limited number of visitors to book

your place on a tour of this fantastic

little house (tour duration will be

approximately 30 mins).

Old Auchentroig is more than another

building associated with Rob Roy

MacGregor and has been described

as ‘a very early artisan interpretation

of the symmetrical classicism which

succeeded 17th century Renaissance styles. It is of exceptional

significance in understanding the development of Scottish

vernacular architecture’. Dated 1702 this Category A Listed Laird’s

house was restored as part of the National Trust for Scotland’s

Little Houses Improvement Scheme in 1999. It retains its datestone,

with coat of arms above, and is unusually intact for a

building of this age and retains a high proportion of its original

fabric (including practically its entire roof structure).
