Description

Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park Planning Authority

Dreadnought Place was constructed circa 1898 and is a 2-storey and attic 4-bay harled tenement with a pair of shops to the ground floor and recessed stair towers to the North and South elevations. Prominently sited in the Main Street of Killin, Dreadnought Place is a good example of this type of tenemental building which began to be built in Killin in the late 19th century. It respects the local architectural character with its timber bargeboarding and overhanging eaves but incorporates several more metropolitan late 19th century details. The oriel windows at the outer bays are particularly unusual for the local area as are string courses. Where the original glazing pattern remains this adds substantially to the character of the building. The original washhouse for the property remains to the rear of the building. It contributes positively to the streetscape in Killin.

The largely symmetrical principal (East) elevation has a pair of shops with plate glass windows to the ground floor with recessed entrances. Above, the outer bays are composed of tripartite oriel windows breaking the eaves with pitched gables. The inner bays have single light windows, those to the attic floor breaking the eaves with pitched gables. String courses separate the floors of the building. Recessed to the North and South elevation elevation of the building are the 2-storey and attic stair towers with 4-panel timber entrance doors with 3-pane rectangular fanlights above.

To the rear (West elevation) there is a monopitch later extension to the left.

INTERIOR

(Top flat to South, not seen). Simple timber boarded dado to stairwells. 1st floor flat to North appears to be the most intact: timber boarded dado to hallway and rear room. 4-panel timber doors. Oriel windowed room has decorative cornice, tiled chimneypiece. Part-glazed cupboard with Art Nouveau brass finger plate. Original glazing.

MATERIALS

Harled with sandstone ashlar predominantly to dressings, quoins, and shopfronts of principal elevation. Timber bargeboards to principal elevation and stairtowers mostly have zigzag motif. Some non-traditional replacement glazing. Original windows where they remain are timber sash and case with horns, mostly 12-pane over 2-pane and 9-pane over plate glass.

ANCILLARY STRUCTURE AND BOUNDARY WALLS

Abutting the monopitch extension to the West elevation is the projecting wing of the corrugated iron washhouse. It has a slate roof and simple timber boarded doors. To the North, West and South there is a coped rubble stone wall.

About Listed Buildings

Historic Environment Scotland is responsible for designating sites and places at the national level. These designations are Scheduled monuments, Listed buildings, Inventory of gardens and designed landscapes and Inventory of historic battlefields.

We make recommendations to the Scottish Government about historic marine protected areas, and the Scottish Ministers decide whether to designate.

Listing is the process that identifies, designates and provides statutory protection for buildings of special architectural or historic interest as set out in the Planning (Listed Buildings and Conservation Areas) (Scotland) Act 1997.

We list buildings which are found to be of special architectural or historic interest using the selection guidance published in Designation Policy and Selection Guidance (2019)

Listed building records provide an indication of the special architectural or historic interest of the listed building which has been identified by its statutory address. The description and additional information provided are supplementary and have no legal weight.

These records are not definitive historical accounts or a complete description of the building(s). If part of a building is not described it does not mean it is not listed. 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 legal part of the listing is the address/name of site which is known as the statutory address. Other than the name or address of a listed building, further details are provided for information purposes only. Historic Environment Scotland does not accept any liability for any loss or damage suffered as a consequence of inaccuracies in the information provided. Addresses and building names may have changed since the date of listing. Even if a number or name is missing from a listing address it will still be listed. Listing covers both the exterior and the interior and any object or structure fixed to the building. Listing also applies to buildings or structures not physically attached but which are part of the curtilage (or land) of the listed building as long as they were erected before 1 July 1948.

While Historic Environment Scotland is responsible for designating listed buildings, the planning authority is responsible for determining what is covered by the listing, including what is listed through curtilage. However, for listed buildings designated or for listings amended from 1 October 2015, legal exclusions to the listing may apply.

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 1997 Act. 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 subsequent legislation.

Listed building consent is required for changes to a listed building which affect its character as a building of special architectural or historic interest. The relevant planning authority is the point of contact for applications for listed building consent.
