Ochtertyre[pronunciation?] is a settlement in Perth and Kinross, Scotland. It lies between Crieff and Loch Turret, north of the A85.

History[edit]

Originally the estate belonged to the Murrays but was sold to the Dundas family in the early 19th century. Robert Burns visited Sir William Murray at Ochtertyre on his third northern tour with Nicol.

The house is a category A listed Georgian building dating from 1784-1790. Its architect is unknown.

The house bought by the wealthy Dundas family in 1812 and its inhabitants included:

From 1939 to 1965 the house served as a school. It is now partly used as a restaurant.

Architecture[edit]

A family mausoleum was added in 1809, remote from the main house, designed by Charles Heathcote Tatham.[1]
