1904. 2-storey, 3-bay 'Arts & Crafts' villa (now subdivided into 2 flats, 2004). A well designed building, using good quality materials executed with attention to detail. In common with notable 'Arts & Crafts' houses the principal elements of the exterior are carefully linked to the adjacent features to form a cohesive whole. The quality of the building reflects the prosperity of Callander as a tourist destination at the turn of the 20th century. Ach Na Coile's individual design sets it apart from the majority of villas in Callander which tend to be more conventional 'pattern book' designs. It is set in a prominent location on raised ground, with its fenestration arranged to take advantage of commanding views of Callander and its environs.

The house is characterised by its colonnaded entrance loggia with its chamfered SE corner rising to an attractve semi-octagonal dormer window with polygonal roof. An impressive 2-storey 4-light canted window is arranged to the gabled left bay. The assymetrical rear elevation has a 1957 lean-to addition with a large modern box dormer window, must likely added at the time the house was subdivided for multiple occupancy.


Many decorative interior features remain; Art Nouveau motifs to decorative copper finger plates to 2 and 4-panel timber doors. Restrained inglenook fireplace in former 1st floor drawing room, framed by pilasters rising to plate shelf, Lorimersque plaster reliefs of fruit and foliage to ceiling. A collection of stylised classical timber chimneypieces throughout house, some with decorative tiles.


Stugged and snecked 'pudding stone' with blonde sandstone dressings. Panelled timber 2-leaf outer door, timber inner door with tall lower panels and stained glass upper. Timber sash and case windows, plate glass lower sashes and multipaned upper. Timber bargeboards to gables with peg motifs. Pitched grey slate roof, terracotta ridge tiles. Cope-less stacks with cans.

Boundary Wall, Railings and Gatepiers.

Rubble boundary wall to SW running along Ancaster Road with railings above (railings overgrown by bush, 2004). Square-plan ashlar gatepiers with pyramidal caps surmounted by ball finials to W giving access to driveway to house.

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.
