Moncreiffe House was built in 1679, by the architect Sir William Bruce. It incorporated an older tower house and burned down in November 1957, claiming the life of Sir David Moncreiffe of that Ilk, 10th Baronet, the twenty-third Laird of Clan Moncreiffe. This tragedy led to the chiefship of the great Scottish herald and historian Sir Iain Moncreiffe of that Ilk, 11th Baronet.
At the 2011 census, it is the only permanently inhabited freshwater island in Scotland which is not on Loch Lomond.
