NOTES: The Perthshire village of Fortingall was built between 1890 and 1891 for shipowner Sir Donald Currie, who had bought the Glenlyon Estate, including the village, in 1885. It was designed by James M MacLaren and remains an important example of Arts and Crafts vernacular architecture in Scotland. Glenlyon House was orignally built in the late 17th century. In 1729 it was doubled in size and made into an L-plan. With the purchase of the estate by Currie, major alterations were carried out by Dunn & Watson, including the addition of a wing to the north-west and the heightening of the south-west wing.
