Kinloch House & Mausoleum

Home of a 19thc slave owner and Dundee politician.

This five-bay two-storey house, commanding panoramic views to north and south, was designed and built by the radical politician George Kinloch of Kinloch for himself in 1798.

The basement contained the kitchens and servants rooms and the first floor house bedrooms and a small parlour or library over the entrance hall. In the later 18th century a wing was added to the east end of the house and in 1864 John Carver of Meigle provided plans for the creation of a new north wing and a new three- storey tower entrance. The gatepiers appear to date from the Victorian remodelling but the magnificent eagles may be Georgian and brought in from elsewhere.

The nearby Romanesque style Mausoleum was built in 1861 is the burial ground of the Kinloch family, including George Kinloch himself. It was built on the same site and a 9thc chapel dedicated to the Virgin Mary.
