Statement of Interest

Located picturesquely, backing onto the woodland surrounding Dalserf House (now demolished) on the narrow approach road to the 17th century Dalserf Church, and originally the manse to it. A fairly distinct course of stones runs through the 1st floor windows suggesting that the roof has been raised at some point; possibly the same is the case with the gables which would originally have been much steeper and probably thatched. This evidence suggests that the house was possibly constructed in the 17th century.
