Statement of Interest

Said to be the former stables for Park House (see separate listing), a former branch of the Clydesdale Bank during most of the 19th century. The S end was formerly linked to the main house's service wing. These stables possibly belonged to the brewery previously built on this land by John Tulloch in 1775.
