Brief description of site
The designed landscape at Ochtertyre House was laid out in the late-18th century. Although less impressive now than at the time of its creation, the parkland, woodland and water bodies still form an attractive layout. Part of the original wider estate around Loch Monzievaird has been developed for holiday chalets.
Brief history of site
The present designed landscape is thought to be have been established following the building of the house between 1784 and 1790 but it may have incorporated features of a designed landscape associated with the earlier house dating from 1750 to 1784.
The house was a school known as Seymour Lodge from 1939 to 1965. Since then it has been a theatre venue, a restaurant and a private home.
