Statement of Interest

The former stables to the E have been altered to residential accommodation, and are not including in the listing. The house appears to have been owned by the Boyds of Cherrytrees, but rented out. The Rev Baird, who was the driving force behind the building of the new church, lived at Yetholm Hall whilst the manse was being renovated in 1831.
