Statement of Interest

The coach house to E of Hillview, is listed separately. The Moffat Monument is sited just to N. Lewis Gordon of Gordonhall was the civil engineer who devised the layout for the village to John Cockburn's ideas, and he appears to have built Hillview as his own residence. Served as the Free Kirk manse, St John's for a short period, from 1892. The restoration inserted new windows in the canted bay to N and W elevation, bolt at 1st floor. Currently 2 flats (1989). No fine original details have survived in the interior.
