Statement of Interest

Thought to be a later gate lodge to Mavisbank (listed separately) and sited at the top of the north drive. This lodge was formerly used by the adjacent Linden Lodge and is partially hidden by its boundary wall. Nearby is the former Mavisbank Jointure House, which predates this building (also listed).
