Statement of Interest

In 1898 James Donald decided to demolish some rather unsightly buildings around the entrance area to St Brides with a view to the upgrading the appearance of the village centre. He built this lodge as accommodation for the church officer, erected the monument to Joanna Bailie (see separate list description) and planted trees and shrubs nearby. Use of the same strong red sandstone for the lodge ties it to the church and to the monument which stand behind. Ecclesiastical references are made by the use of pointed-arched and trefoil-headed windows, although its domestic purpose is re-affirmed by the existence of the tall central stacks.
