Statement of Interest

Part of a B-Group including 'Drygrange House (Grangehall Care Home, Formerly St Andrew's College) Including Garden Terrace Walls to South'; 'Drygrange, Walled Garden'; ' Drygrange, North Lodge Including Gates, Gatepiers and Quadrant Walls'; 'Drygrange, South Lodge Including Gates, Gatepiers and Quadrant Walls'; 'Drygrange, House to North of Steading'; 'Drygrange, Stables and Steading' and 'Drygrange, Summerhouse'.

A large, well-detailed steading and stables complex extended and converted for commercial and domestic use. Its ogee-roofed clock tower, in the 17th century manner as at Glasgow Old College, adds considerably to its interest, and it sits well within its wider context of the Drygrange estate. The building is currently occupied by the Tweed Foundation, with part of the complex known as Drygrange Stables Cottage and also in part domestic use incorporating 1 and 2 Drygrange Cottages.
