Typical late eighteenth/early nineteenth century Scottish manse. The 3-bay, 2-storey manse with small symmetrical single storey wings was a large, refined and comfortable building type developed by the church as a part of "an enlightened policy to induce men of learning and culture to accept charges in the country to serve rural populations remote from centres of teaching". The support or collusion between the church and the local land-owning class is clear here, as elsewhere, where a costly manse and glebe is situated as close to an estate boundary as to the church. In this case the Dalzell estate of the Hamiltons of Dalzell. A relationship between church, state and landowner beloved by the eighteenth century improvers and held up for condemnation by the leaders of the 1843 Disruption in equal measures.
