Stenhousemuir, Central Lowlands, Scotland

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.
