Statement of Interest

The cartshed is not marked on the OS Map of 1907. The cartshed was probably designed by Robert Weir Schultz as fabric and form follow that of the Old Place of Mochrum and the Electricity House nearby, attributed to him. Stewart and Paterson's work at House of Elrig echoes details here. See separate listings for Old Place of Mochrum: Bridge; Electricity House and Sawmill; Old Place of Mochrum, with Walled Garden and Sundial.
