Statement of Interest

Craigmill House was built for John Grant of Craig Mill. In 1881 Warden referred to a sculpted stone removed from the manse garden wall to a new mansion erected close to the site of the old parish manse by the Laird of Craig Mill. The house is boarded up (1991) and the interior was not inspected.
