Statement of Interest

Formerly listed as the Dunlop Hotel, and originally called The New Inn. This building occupies a very prominent position in the middle of the village, on the junction of Main Street and Stewarton Road. In 1817 the road between Dunlop and Stewarton was upgraded to a turnpike, and this inn was probably built soon afterwards. The 1st edition OS map shows a building adjoining the South gable, and this may have been a stable. The bowed corner is probably a slightly later addition. 19 Main street is also later, and does not appear on the 1856 OS map; however, the lying-pane glazing to the upper windows indicates that it is unlikely to have been built after 1860.
