Scope and Content Drawing by William Burn showing Poltalloch House, Argyll and Bute This Jacobean-style mansion was designed for Neill Malcolm between 1849 and 1853 by the London office of William Burn (1789-1870). Burn, who had studied under Robert Smirke, initiated the Scottish Baronial style for Scottish country houses. The exterior of the building has a lot of Jacobean-style detailing such as two- and three-light mullion-and-transom windows, a pierced roof balustrade with intermediate and angle finials and groups of octagonal chimney-stacks. The quoins, at the corners of the building, were to be shaped and in relief. There were to be shaped gables, some of which would bear the letter 'M' in relief. Source: RCAHMS contribution to SCRAN.
