Description

Loch Lomond And Trossachs National Park Planning Authority

Early 18th century. Gabled mausoleum with harled walls and rusticated quoins and door architrave. Round-arched entrance in W gable with uninscribed panel in moulded frame above; small window to gable apex; round-arched window to E gable. Ashlar base course above rubble foundation; moulded eaves course; coped skews. Occupies a prominent situation on the South Loch Earn road by Edinample Bridge and the entrance to Edinample Castle.

Interior: 16 recesses in the side and end walls, one of which is covered by a marble plaque in memory of Alexander Campbell. The plaque is inscribed in Latin, and very faint.

Materials: 2-leaf timber-boarded doors. White-washed, rendered walls with red sandstone ashlar dressings. Graded grey slate.

Statement of Special Interest

This is believed to be the mausoleum of Lieutenant Colonel Alexander Campbell of Monzie and Fonab, who bought Edinample in about 1717. This is probably an alternative spelling of Colonel Alexander Campbell of Finab, who was an original commander of one of the 6 companies of soldiers that were established in 1729 and subsequently amalgamated to form the Black Watch Regiment. Full details of this are to be found in histories of the Black Watch. The date of Alexander Campbell's death is unknown: the 'Notes on the Campbells of Edinample', which mentions Lieutenant Colonel Alexander Campbell of Monzie and Fonab suggests that he died in 1724, but this cannot be correct if he was indeed the same person as Colonel Alexander Campbell of Finab, who was still alive in 1729.

Information regarding the interior was supplied by the owner of Edinample Castle, as it was not possible to gain access during resurvey fieldwork.

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.
