Old Photograph High Street Kinbuck Scotland


Old photograph of cottages on the High Street in Kinbuck village located four miles North of Dunblane, Scotland. It is located by the Allan Water and the Stirling to Perth, Perthshire, Railway line, four miles north of Dunblane. Kinbuck was the location of the retreat of the Jacobite troops under the Earl of Mar following the Battle of Sheriffmuir on 13 November 1715. Cromlix House is a Victorian mansion by Kinbuck, Perthshire. A house was built on the site in 1874 as a family residence in the time of Captain Arthur Drummond Hay, but was destroyed by fire in 1878. It was replaced in 1880. In February 2013, it was confirmed that tennis player Andy Murray had bought the property for £1.8 million, and opened the house as a 15 room five star hotel in April 2014. Kinbuck Railway station on the Stirling to Perth portion of the Glasgow to Kinnaber Junction Strathmore line of the former Caledonian Railway was opened by the Scottish Central Railway on 22 May 1848. It closed to regular passenger traffic on 11 June 1956, the line itself remaining in use. Of interest to folks with ancestry, genealogy or Scottish Family Roots in Scotland who may wish to visit one day.
