Statement of Interest

Built as coach house to adjacent Cambusnethan House (see separate listing). Groome's states that the house was built as a mock Priory for the Lockhart family and was set in large and beautiful grounds of which there is no remains today. NMRS has postcards of Priory in the nineteenth century. The house was used for mock medieval banquets in the 1970s but was more recently burnt out and is now used as an illegal rubbish dump. Gillespie Graham was prolific in the production of Tudor/Gothic mansions in the first part of the nineteenth century with nearby Wishaw House and Coltness House also by him, also ruinous.
