Blairhoyle

A modern mansion situated within 9.7 ha (24 acres) and older designed landscape in Central Stirling, Blairhoyle is located at a settlement of the same name, 2 miles (3 km) east of the Port of Menteith and 5 miles (8 km) south of Callander. This land here was owned by the Leitches but passed into the Graham family by marriage, who built the original mansion in 1852 and laid out the parkland. In the 1860s, the estate passed to the Lee family and, in 1890, it was purchased by George Crabbie, the Leith merchant famous for his green ginger wine. He was responsible for the gardens and arboretum.

The old mansion was demolished and replaced by a new house in 1961, and the estate was spilt up. The old walled-garden was retained and a rock-garden developed by Colonel and Mrs Pattullo, who bought Blairhoyle in 1968. The house was re-developed between 1995 and 1997 around the core of the previous to create the current property.
