Dunalastair  Perthshire

 

In 1882-4, Frances Groome's Ordnance Gazetteer of Scotland described Dunalastair like this:

Dun Alastair or Mount Alexander, a fine modern Scottish Baronial mansion in Fortingall parish, Perthshire, on the left bank of the Tummel, 3 miles E of Kinloch Rannoch, and 17 W of Pitlochry. Its predecessor was the seat of the Struan Robertsons, and it owes much of its ornamental planting to the Jacobite poetchieftain of Clan Donnachie, Alexander Robertson (16701749), the prototype of Scott's ` Baron of Bradwardine. ' The present house was built by Gen. Sir John Macdonald, K. C. B. (1788-1866). There is a post and telegraph office of Dun Alastair. See Dalchosnie.
