Statement of Interest

This 19th century, little externally altered farmhouse and associated steading form a fine group. The farmhouse has retained its symmetrical classical features.

A house at Dinmurchie is identified on some earlier maps, including the 1775 New Map of Ayrshire. Dinmurchie is also documented to be the birthplace of Robert Dalrymple, 1st Viscount Stair, who played a significant part in the development of Scots Law. Viscount Stair was born in 1619, but the current buildings at Dinmurchie seem to date predominantly from the 19th century. It may be that there is an earlier core to the buildings.
