Statement of Interest

The original house consisted of a central block (68 x 34) with

N. centre bow with quadrant colonnades to kitchen (relict of

earlier house) at S.E. and stables at S.W. In 1812-4 a big

wing 34' long was added on the W. and a low one 102' long on

the E, both behind the colonnades, and a porch at centre s. In

1858 the E. wing was shortened to 66' and made the S. side of

the new kitchen court (letter from Earl of Dundee 14.4.69)
