Ochtertyre

A house and estate in Stirling Council Area, Ochtertyre lies on the right bank of the River Teith, 3½ miles (6 km) northwest of Stirling. The house sits amongst parkland and dates from the 1760s. It was the home of the celebrated diarist John Ramsay of Ochtertyre (1736 - 1814). A fine walled garden dates from 1778. The house was later a property of the Dundas family, the seat of Sir David Dundas (1799 - 1877), Member of Parliament for Sutherland, and is now owned by the Stirlings, who once lived across the river at Keir House. A Roman marching camp was discovered here in the 1980s, thought to represent the crossing point of the Teith at that time.
