Statement of Interest

An illustration in Pagan's ANTIQUITIES OF BOTHWELL shows the Manse in more or less its present form, dated 1802-1865, although stylistically it seems to owe more to 1865 than to 1802; an illustration in Waddell's BY BOTHWELL BANKS shows the Manse at the turn of the 18th century as a single storey, thatched building with garrets. He notes how Dr. McCulloch, the minister of the time, had this new manse erected and, due to a liking for gardening, created an orchard to the rear. The New Statistical Account says, "The manse is large, comfortable, and in good repair. The glebe consists of above 4 acres....There is an orchard of nearly 2 acres, but the soil and the situation are not considered favourable for fruit trees and the crop is precarious". The outbuilding to the rear is now a showroom for an interior decoration business.
