Archaeology Notes

NS79SE 26 79323 93720

(NS 7931 9372) Norie's House (NR)

OS 25" map (1966)

The RCAHMS visited Norrie's House in 1955, prior to its reconstruction in 1958-9. They describe it as partly demolished at the rear and gutted internally; though its facade is one of the best examples of 17th century architecture in Stirling. The facade is four storeys and an attic in height; the masonry is ashlar. The ground floor, much disfigured, has been used as a shop. Initials carved on the second floor pediments probably represent James Norrie (RCAHMS) Norie (Fleming), a prominent Town Clerk of Stirling, and a date of 1671 probably commemorates the erection of the building.

RCAHMS 1963, visited 1955; J S Fleming 1902

Norie's House is no 16 Broad Street. It is as described. Both spellings, "Norie's" and "Norrie's" are used by various authorities. There is no name plaque.

Visited by OS (JP) 6 December 1973.
