Kinnell House

A white-harled house, located a quarter-mile (0.5 km) east of Killin, Stirling Council Area, on the opposite bank of the River Dochart, Kinnell House was built around 1580 and became the ancestral home of the Macnab chiefs from 1654. Remodelled as a two-storey, five-bay mansion in the 18th century, the house was sold to John Campbell, 1st Marquis of Breadalbane (1762 - 1834), by the 17th Laird, Archibald Macnab (1777 - 1860), in an attempt to repay the debts of his father, the famous Francis Macnab (1734 - 1816). It was further extended in the mid-19th century.

Kinnell was bought back by the 22nd Macnab chief in 1949, only to be sold again in 1978 to meet death duties.
