Statement of Interest

The cottage and dairy have a very distinctive appearance in terms of their form and materials used. The survival of the Dairy in its substantially unaltered state is also remarkable. The buildings were ancillary structures of the second or 'New' Mar Lodge, built in the mid 19th century on higher ground after the 'Old' Mar Lodge was damaged in the 'Muckle Spate' of 1829. As well as being the only buildings to survive from this second estate complex, these buildings also display traditional features of the area, and retain much of their original character. The use of weatherboarding and diamond lattice work is also a particular feature of the buildings of this period on the Mar Estate.
