Garth House

Rebuilt in 1838 to a design by Andrew Heiton senior, the Gothic-style Garth House is situated on the left bank of the River Lyon, at the eastern end of Glen Lyon in Perth and Kinross. An earlier building on this site was the birthplace of Major-General David Stewart (1772 - 1829), Governor of St Lucia and author of 'Sketches of the Highlanders'. It was later owned by Sir Archibald Campbell (1769 - 1843), Governor of New Brunswick, and Sir Donald Currie (1825 - 1909) of the Union Castle shipping line.
