Statement of Interest

Built for Admiral (then Captain) Maitland who received

Napoleon's surrender on the Bellerophon. His architect

may have been James Mylne as he was preses of the meeting

of heritors at which Mylne was appointed to design the

parish kirk. An earlier house stood on the same site and

may be partly incorporated in the present house. The S.

bow and 2 E. pays are said to be older than the W. part

and the original entrance was at the bow. (Information

from Dr D.R. Maitland).
