Statement of Interest

A good survival of the ancillary structures required for a hunting or fishing lodge such as Cambus O'May. The simple rubble construction is indicative of the functional nature of the building but nonetheless clearly shows historic character through its traditional materials; most notably the kennels retain their original iron railings. With all lodges designed as bases for hunting or fishing, accommodation for dogs was a necessity; these kennels are therefore clear evidence of the social history of the area and the popularity of country sports in the late nineteenth century.

Listed as part of a B group with Cambus O'May Hotel, Walled Garden and Stable Block.
