Statement of Interest

See NOTES to Balmuir House. The dovecot is probably comtemporary with the original part of Balmuir House. The moulded skew ends are similar to those at the old stable, listed separately. Pantiles which formerly covered the dovecot are stored within. Included in B group with Balmuir House, Garage Cottage, The Old Stable, Coach House/stable and walled kitchen garden.
