Caledonian Stoves - The Guild of Master Craftsmen

Our Team

Ben Kilgour-Manston

Started working at a young age in the family building firm which grew to employ 500 tradespeople and built homes and businesses across Europe.

Then he did an apprenticeship with a prestigious furniture maker in Devon, Phoenix workshops, under Tim Rae-Duke.

In his quest to understand more about Wood as a product, he studied Arboriculture, and then set up his own business as a tree surgeon.

Finally, he set up his own Building Firm, which he has been running ever since, and started Caledonian Stoves with his Wife and Son in 2019 after realising a gap in the market.

Harriet Kilgour-Manston


Harriet grew up familiar with the building industry as her parents ran their own family building firm. Her career before Caledonian Stoves was spent working as a professional in the Equestrian Industry, working in many different sectors, and becoming a Riding Instructor.

Once Harriet and Ben knew they wanted to get married, they set up Caledonian Stoves Ltd in Stirlingshire where they settled together, and are always striving to provide a service they can feel proud of, and hope that their customers feel they have a professional and personal touch.

He has been in the construction industry for 22 years. He has a vast knowledge of the

building trade and specialise in lime pointing, stone work, brick and block work, concreting, roughcasting, lime Harling, cement works, restoration, renovation and structural works to name a few.

Alastair takes great pride in his work, and customer satisfaction is a top priority.

Ross O’Boyle

Originally from Northern Ireland, Ross came to Stirling to study Marine Biology at the University here. After graduating, he enrolled onto a master’s degree in Sustainable Aquaculture also at the University of Stirling.

Ross now works at Caledonian Stoves full-time after completing his studies.

Ross is relatively new to the trade industry but has years of manual labour experience working for his Dad’s gardening business and enjoys working to a high standard.

Ruth Stevenson

Ruth moved to Stirling for university in 2018 to study Animal Biology and never left. She pursued a Masters degree after completing her undergraduate course in 2022 and started with Caledonian Stoves part time in October 2023. Now full time after completing her studies, Ruth works alongside Harriet in the office answering enquiries and managing stock orders.

This is Ruth’s first job in the building industry but she is keen to learn the terms and offer a high level of customer service.
