Callendar House

By AllistairK
Originally built in the 14th century, with the French Renaissance & Scottish Baronial aspects added during the 19th century, this was formerly the home of the main landowning family in the district. Oliver Cromwell; Mary, Queen of Scots, Bonnie Prince Charlie and Queen Victoria all either stayed here or visited. Sitting within the Callendar Estate in Falkirk, itís now a museum and heritage research centre controlling the districts historical archives from a Victorian oak panelled library. The first organised group of amateur photographers in the District were photographed here c1890. In 2017 I got the current bunch together and we were photographed on the same spots. The resultant Prints, with short biographies of themselves written by the modern day photographers, joined the c1890 Prints and other photographic material in the archive. Good tearoom & cafe too 🙂

That is the most important thing to consider when deciding which stately homes/NT properties!

Very good pov. It looks like it may have some age related cricks but who can blame it after all these years and additions to boot. Thank you for the history,
