Description

Loch Lomond And Trossachs National Park Planning Authority

Appears on 1st edition Ordnance Survey map (1859-64), but probably dating from the first half of the 19th century. Substantial rectangular-plan seasoning shed, situated immediately to NW of a water-powered saw mill which is currently in ruinous condition (2005). It has an unusual form of construction, composed of full-height random rubble piers with vertically boarded timber openings and a pitched slate roof. There is a large opening to the NE elevation, presumably to allow freshly sawn timber to be carried from the mill into the shed.

Located to the N of Rednock House beside Rednock Burn, it originally served as a seasoning and drying shed for timber processed in the adjacent estate saw mill. The agricultural revolution of the 18th and early 19th centuries ushered in an era of increased exploitation of the natural resources, such as timber, on estates like Rednock. Although sheds of this kind were once common in Scotland, this one is a very rare survivor, and of regional importance.

Statement of Interest

The seasoning shed is currently (2005) in a dilapidated condition. There was originally a dam to the N, with sluice gates giving access to the mill lade.
