Statement of Interest

A-Group with Dunlop House and Bridge. Built as the main Gate Lodge for Dunlop House, presumably by the architect of the house, David Hamilton. The Jacobethan strapwork detailing echoes the more elaborate stonework of the house. The strapwork on the original part of the lodge appears to be contemporary with it, but that over the window of the circa 1905 addition looks much older, and has probably come from another building ' possibly the previous Dunlop House. The central stack has unfortunately been removed, but is shown in an old photo in 'Old Stewarton, Dunlop and Lugton'.
