Statement of Interest

Gagie Home Farm was formerly the home farm for Gagie House and is listed in this context as an A group with Gagie House, Summerhouse, Walled Garden and Sundial, Gatepiers and Adjoining Walls, Outer Gatepiers and Adjoining Walls, and Coach House/Stable. Whyte refers to an Inventory of 1649 in the Guthrie papers which indicates the existence of 2 clusters of buildings, parts of which may remain. The steading also relates to the agricultural improvements of the 1760s referred to by Imlach in the OSA. The farm was acquired by the Department of Agriculture and Fisheries after the First World War and divided into 3 holdings, now reduced to 2, Nos 1 and 3. The farm house has been demolished as has a horse engine which was at the north of the north east range. See also the NOTES to Gagie House.
