Circa 1800 traditional 2-storey, 3-bay farmhouse with unusual piend roofed bothy adjoining to E. Set back from the main road, Auchyle is situated just to the NE of the village of Port of Menteith and was originally part of the Rednock Estate. A good example of a relatively unaltered improvement period farmhouse.

Near symmetrical principal (S) elevation with central door flanked by windows to side and above. Single windows on ground and 1st floors of W return. Lower 2-storey bothy set back to right (E), with small ground floor window to front elevation, modern glazing to side and single 1st floor window to rear. 2 later single storey additions to rear of bothy and house with various openings. Largely blank rear wall of farmhouse, except for single window to centre.


Roughcast with painted sandstone margins. Predominantly 12-pane timber sash and case windows, modern rooflights to front. Pitched roof to house, piended roofs to bothy and rear addition to house, flat roof to rear addition to bothy, all with new grey slates. Rendered coped gablehead stacks with circular clay cans.


Admission not possible in 2004. However, according to the present tenant, it has a circular stone wheel stair, a feature of a few of the 18th century houses in the parish. The first floor of the bothy is accessible by ladder from the kitchen below.

Statement of Special Interest

There was formerly a U-plan steading behind the farmhouse to the N, demolished July 2005.

The farm was originally known as Easter Auchyle to distinguish it from the original Auchyle, which was located to the W of Port of Menteith (now completely destroyed).

About Listed Buildings

Listing is the way that a building or structure of special architectural or historic interest is recognised by law through the Planning (Listed Buildings and Conservation Areas) (Scotland) Act 1997.

We list buildings of special architectural or historic interest using the criteria published in the Historic Environment Scotland Policy Statement.

The information in the listed building record gives an indication of the special architectural or historic interest of the listed building(s). It is not a definitive historical account or a complete description of the building(s). The format of the listed building record has changed over time. Earlier records may be brief and some information will not have been recorded.

The only legal part of the listing is the address/name of site. Addresses and building names may have changed since the date of listing and if a number or name is missing from a listing address it may still be listed. Listing covers both the exterior and the interior and any object or structure fixed to the building. Listing can also cover structures not physically attached but which are part of the curtilage of the building, such as boundary walls, gates, gatepiers, ancillary buildings etc. The planning authority is responsible for advising on what is covered by the listing including the curtilage of a listed building. Since 1 October 2015 we have been able to exclude items from a listing. If part of a building is not listed, it will say that it is excluded in the statutory address and in the statement of special interest in the listed building record. The statement will use the word 'excluding' and quote the relevant section of the Historic Environment Scotland Act 2014. Some earlier listed building records may use the word 'excluding', but if the Act is not quoted, the record has not been revised to reflect current legislation.

If you want to alter, extend or demolish a listed building you need to contact your planning authority to see if you need listed building consent. The planning authority advises on the need for listed building consent and they also decide what a listing covers. The planning authority is the main point of contact for all applications for listed building consent.
