Statement of Interest

This building was erected for the Craig-Brown family, (see listing for Ettrick Terrace, Ettrick Lodge, Ettrick Dene, with boundary walls, railings and gateways). There was an extensive conservatory projecting from the outer right of the N elevation in the 1950s. The house was first turned from a private residence to a Temperance Hotel; and has remained a hotel ever since, although now licensed. The single storey lodge is near to the house, to N, and has been much altered in modern times. Stylistically it is similar to the main house.
