Statement of Interest

Formerly a lodge to Dalserf House which the Old Statistical Account notes as having been occupied by Captain James Hamilton of Broomhill. It is described as 'a neat modern building, standing up on an eminence, near the village of Dalserf and commands a charming prospect, both up and down the Clyde.' The New Statistical Account notes that Dalserf House 'is let by the owner'. In 1894 Dalserf House was extended by G Henderson, who possibly designed the lodge too. The main house has subsequently been demolished.
