Statement of Interest

Former stable offices of manse lie to W along roadside, serving currently as Tithe Byre and Bygone Byre, and are not included in current listings. The Forrest map indicates that there was a manse of some standing, on or near site in 1799. It seems more probable that the present manse dates to the Burn work, possibly incorporating earlier fabric.
