Annie's Place, as part of The Old Manse, is a listed building. We have recently restored the outside with a lime-plaster covering, typical of an 18th century Scottish building. This has recreated its traditional appearance and added to the health of the building. Replacement double-glazed windows have removed draughts; together these renovations have ensured that Annie's Place is warm and cosy at any time of the year!
We also commissioned a traditional style date stone (1761) from a local sculptor for above Annie's Place front door, the original entrance to the Old Manse. You can read all about these upgrades and see photos in Our Blog posts : Facelift for Annie's Place! and New Date Stone
