(NS 89864 79352) Callendar House (NR)

OS 6" map (1967)

Callendar House consists of a central block, 182' x 50', rising to a height of three storeys and an attic, together with flanking wings two storeys high. The building incorporates work of many different periods, but the alterations and additions to the fabric have been so numerous that the complete architectural evolution of the house cannot now be traced in detail. The plan sets out what appear to be the main stages, which may be summarised as follows:

The oldest portion of the house seems to be the NW angle of the main block, in which there may be traced the outlines of a small rectangular tower-house, perhaps of late 14th or 15th century date. To the S wall of this tower was added an E wing, which was itself subsequently extended E. These alterations presumably took place in the 15th or 16th centuries. In the mid-17th century, a programme of additions and alterations was carried out, transforming the building from a castle to a mansion. Between 1869 and 1877, further alterations were carried out to give the house its present appearance.

The lands of Callander came into the possession of the Livingstone family in 1345-6, and were forfeited in 1715; in 1783 it was sold to William Forbes, a descendant of whom possesses it today.

Continuation of Architecture notes:

Ornaments for the Staircase of Callendar House

'I have had several conversations with Mr Main about the Ornaments for the top of the Stair Case, similar to those on the Register's Office but I find there has been some mistake between Mr Armstrong and him, as he assures me he cannot do them in a sufficient manner for less than 12 pounds Exclusive of Gilding.' It will be necessary to have the old ones taken down to ascertain the sizes and method of fixing.
