Description

Loch Lomond And Trossachs National Park Planning Authority

Tyneshandon is a mid-19th century multi-use building which is a central building in the village of Strone. It is typical of the type of building found alongside Clyde piers and contributes to the group of buildings on the Strone shore. Tyneshandon, overlooking Strone Pier, is a 5-bay 2-storey building with a projecting gable front to the W and a cast iron columned porch.

Tyneshandon was probably built at around the same time as the pier at Strone (1847) and is likely to have been a tenement with services such as a ticket office for steamer passengers on the ground floor. The building has changed little since it was built, with 5 window bays on the first floor, those to the gable front hoodmoulded. On the ground floor , there were at least two businesses, one of which had the barleytwist-columned porch added later in the 19th century. On this front there are are a further two entrances. To the rear there are two doors, one opening to the central stair. The windows may have been lying-pane to both the top and the bottom originally, but the lower panes have since been replaced with plate glass on the front elevation. The eaves are overhanging to all sides, with the exception of part of the rear elevation.

The buildings to the rear of Tyneshandon and two lean-to porches on the rear elevation were in the process of demolition at the time of the site visit (August 2004).

Materials: painted squared sandstone to front elevation, painted rubble with sandstone dressings to rear. Slate roof with stone stacks. Cast iron rooflights. Cast iron porch with corrugated asbestos roof. Timber sash and case windows, lying-pane and plate glass.

Statement of Special Interest

The resort of Strone developed in the mid-19th century as a continuation of the development of the Shore of the Holy Loch which started at Kilmun in the late 1920s, when marine engineer David Napier feued a stretch of land. The pier at Strone was initially built in 1847 and communicated daily with Glasgow and Greenock.

About Designations

Listed Buildings

Historic Environment Scotland is responsible for the designation of buildings, monuments, gardens and designed landscapes and historic battlefields. We also advise Scottish Ministers on the designation of historic marine protected areas.

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 statutory listing address is the legal part of the listing. 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.

Listing covers both the exterior and the interior. Listing can cover structures not mentioned 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. For information about curtilage see www.historicenvironment.scot. 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 is the main point of contact for all applications for listed building consent.
