Statement of Interest

This building was reputedly brought from the west of Scotland where it had been used during the First World War as a barrack block. It is the sole unaltered survivor of others on the Gagie estate, most of which was acquired by the Department of Agriculture and Fisheries in 1919 and divided into holdings. The Department?s extensive records in West Register House were briefly and unsuccessfully examined for this list entry. Specifications for standard hutting issued by the War Department in 1939 show what is probably a modified version of the building listed here. The building appears on the 1921 revision of the OS map. Army huts probably of a similar design were used at Parkhead, Linlithgow (Leneman). There is a ruined hemmel sometimes referred to as a chapel or mausoleum in the garden of this house (see NOTES to Gagie House).
