New Mansion House for Lord Rollo at Duncrub, Perthshire.—A splendid new mansion is being rapidly erected at Duncrub, the place of residence of Lord Rollo. The old mansion has been taken down, and near its site the new one is to be erected, being one of the loveliest situations in Strathearn. The old house was a building of great antiquity, and so solid and compact was the masonry that it was with the greatest difficulty it could he demolished. The present building is to be one of the handsomest and most ornamental in the county- The architecture is to be of the Gothic style- The architect is Mr W G Habershon, London, and the contractor Mr Wetherlie. On Tuesday last the ceremony of laying the foundation-stone took place. [Building News 12 July 1861 p586]
