Statement of Interest

Gilbert Ogilvy trained with Hippolyte Jean Blanc in Edinburgh. The Laundry Cottage developed the 17th century Scottish style revived by John Kinross, Hippolyte Jean Blanc, Rowand Anderson and Alexander Nisbet Paterson at the turn of the 20th century. The laundry is currently converted for residential purposes.
