Statement of Interest

Although an incongruous house style in Killearn, this later Arts and Crafts style of English vernacular architecture can also be found in nearby Drymen at Caoldaroch and in more lavish form at Bolton Muir, East Lothian. The thatch and windows are of particular importance to Drumwhirn's character.
