Statement of Interest

Almost certainly directly associated with former hotel and adjacent stables, all of which were erected for the Duke of Buccleuch at the entrance to his newly-constructed harbour in the late 1830's and 1840's. This building appears on the first edition OS map and was probably constructed shortly after the adjacent hotel. May have originally housed the stablemaster of the adjoining stables.
