Statement of Interest

A typical early 19th century house with pend for a carriage. The building material is distinctive and there are a number of whinstone buildings in the town including 33-35, 37, 39-41 Eglinton Street and the return of 15-19 Main Street (all separately listed). Whinstone was quarried in many areas outside Beith particularly to the N and E, and at Barrmill but is a relatively uncommon domestic building material in Ayrshire (though often seen in the Borders), and is more usually employed for road construction due to its immense hardness.
