Statement of Interest

In 1756 Ardo was sold to Dingwall of Rannieston who built the

house and granary (probably not the present one).

In 1838 Peter Harvey acquired the property and built the

house before he died in 1866. The policies were laid out by

J.F. Beattie who may have designed the house. The porch

detail suggests the hand of Dr. Kelly.
