Statement of Interest

The house and garden certainly pre-date the 1859 fire which

destroyed Lochend House, on which estate they were a

major part. Lochend stables are close by, but not

included in current listing. Former home farm,

Hallhill and cottages, and remains of House are listed

separately.
