Statement of Interest

Pinkiehill Farmhouse is listed separately. The

relatively unspoiled survival of the small steading with

farmhouse at its head, abacking the courtyard, is of

interest, particularly in the context of Inveresk

Village, and with the towering landmark of the stalk.

Formerly known as Midfield Mains. Midfield Cottage,

Carberry Road, is listed separately.
