Statement of Interest

Grangehill is one the principal estates in Beith. First mentioned in 1557 as being in the ownership of William Connel, it was inherited by John Fulton in 1785 on the death of his uncle, Robert Fulton, to whom it had come through marriage. Shortly after this date he built the classical villa that stands today (somewhat disguised beneath later alterations of circa 1900 and earlier 20th century). In 1822 the estate was sold to Isaac Legg of Portsmouth. In 1858 it was then sold to William Patrick of Roughwood and Woodside. He was succeeded in 1861 by his grand nephew John Gavin Fullarton Patrick who presumably had the stables built.
