Lochearnhead Tea Room, 1933

Stirling Council Archives holds building plans for the Western District of Perthshire (1920-1975). In 1932 plans were submitted for a proposed tea room and house at Lochearnhead. The plans were approved in 1933 but it is not known if the building was completed or still exists today. The architects involved were G P K Young & Sons from Perth.

The plans show a two storey building with a tea room on the ground floor and six bedrooms upstairs. Unlike houses today, each bedroom contained its own wash hand basin and there was only one bathroom shared by the six bedrooms. The house also has five fireplaces and a coals room.

The location of the proposed tea room in Lochearnhead is not certain, however, the site plan suggests it is just east of Auchraw Terrace where it meets the A85. If you recognise the tea room please let us know!
