Statement of Interest

On the 1st edition OS map, the Manse is affiliated to the neighbouring Chapel of Ease. McWilliam identifies this as the Parish Church, dated 1826, and states that it became the church hall in 1935 (subsequently demolished). The New Statistical Account records the construction of the Manse in 1832 at the expense of the congregation, who also paid for the church and the school-house.
