Statement of Interest

Built for James Hogier of Newlands, the private bridge and lodge served Mauldslie Castle which lay over the river to the east. The castle, built by the 5th Earl of Hyndford to plans by Robert Adam in 1792-93, was demolished in 1935. The seated dog motif, together with inscription can also be found in the garden of 'Marna', another lodge to the castle, to the south, (see separate list description). The stables to the former Mauldslie Castle survive and lie to the east in Carluke Parish.
