Statement of Interest

John Baird of Glasgow designed the new Ury House for Alexander Baird who took over the estate after the death of Captain Robert Barclay-Allardice in 1854. At this time a new viaduct was erected to the east of the main house, with the Blue Lodge sited at the east entrance. The nearby Blue Gate and Quadrant Walls are listed separately.
