Statement of Interest

Brunton House, formerly known as Barnslee and originally part of the barony of Dalginch, was demolished earlier this century, having been a 2 storey with attic, 5 bay classical house with portico. Some confusion arises over the name as later maps show a now demolished house to the S as Barnslee, this appears on the 1856 OS as Backside, and may also be the property mentioned by Cunningham as South Barnslea owned by Mrs Marjery Simson. Miss Aitken of Barnslee was a benefactress of the Brunton United Free Church in 1843.
