Abstract:
A Level 2 historic building survey was undertaken at Stronvar Garden Cottage, near Balquhidder, prior to its demolition to fulfil a condition of planning consent attached by Loch Lomond and The Trossachs National Park. The scope of works was agreed in advance with their archaeological advisors (the West of Scotland Archaeology Service). The primary building was constructed in the second half of the 19th century and consisted of a single-storey rectangular cottage with two south-facing windows, a west-facing entry and fireplace in the east wall. The cottage was part of the Stronvar estate and presumably housed an estate worker. It had some interesting external decorative features, including the use of quartz boulders on its most visible elevation (south); no internal features survived. At some point in the first half of the 20th century an upper floor, accessed by wooden stair and extension to the rear, was added. This provided a separate dwelling and probably a shared external WC at ground level within the extension. Some original internal features, namely Bakelite fittings and timber doors, survived throughout the upper level. Latterly the two dwellings were unified by construction of a poorly-built extension enclosing the external stair. A corrugated iron out-house was also attached to the eastern elevation.
