Statement of Interest

The Maclaren file only notes farmbuildings at Hillhouses, but the farmhouse could be an early work of Maclaren's. Hillhouses was formerly on the Baldovan Estate, but for many years has been owned and worked by Strathmartine Hospital. House called "Teach Feirme" (December 2003).
