Statement of Interest

See NOTES to Balmuir House. The walled garden is presumed to be contemporary with the original part of Balmuir House. According to a document written by J H Sharp in circa 1930, the flued garden wall was built by James Webster (formerly Graham), probably later in the 18th century. Included in B Group with Balmuir House, dovecot, Garage Cottage, old stable, and coach house/stables.
