07 Jan Stenhousemuir, Central Lowlands, Scotland
Stenhousemuir is a small-town Scotland.
It sits in the Central Lowlands and is a nice stop on any tours of Scotland.
It is without doubt a true hidden gem.
It used to be a major cattle trading town, right up until the 19th century.
In the area is Stenhouse, a tower house built in 1622, and the last of this kind in the country.
It underwent many alterations in 1836.
Inside the grounds was Arthurs Oven, a Roman building that survived until 1743.
It was a beehive shaped building made of stone.
Arthurs Oven was said to have been a temple or shrine.
Also check out Kinnaird House which is nearby, and worth seeing.
The house is mainly 19th century, but the sundial is on a modern pedestal yet dated 1690.
