Statement of Interest

Craigmount House was built for Mrs Elizabeth Mount of South Balluderon (Telaling Parish). The Lamond attribution comes from Mrs Rennie Stewart, and is stylistically supported by the houses designed by Charles and Leslie Ower such as Seymour Lodge, 259 Perth Road, Dundee (1880).
