1840. Well-detailed, ashlar, Gothic monument to Janet Jardine, wife of George Home Drummond of Blair Drummond and mother of John George Home Drummond of Millearne. Stepped base to tall square pedestal with inscriptions and diagonal buttresses, moulded base to octagonal shaft with late Gothic capital surmounted by large cross; about 4.5 metres (15') high.

Statement of Special Interest

B group with Stable Block, Walled Garden with Formal Terraced Garden, South Gate and Ice House.

An important and integral part of the estate buildings at Millearne, this interesting well-detailed monument is sited a short distance to the SW of the Walled Garden on raised ground overlooking the River Earn. It appears on the 1st edition Ordnance Survey map as 'Cenotaph' and is strategically positioned at the western edge of Millearne's designed landscape. The monument would have been a prominent feature of the circular river bank walk with the now demolished Millearne House attributed to R & R Dickson together with John George Home Drummond, begun in 1821, on higher ground to the north. Scotland was slow to adopt the new Tudor Gothic style with few earlier examples than Millearne.

List description revised and category changed from B to C(S) 2009.

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.
