Statement of Special Interest

Strabane was the home of the Duke of Hamilton's Chamberlain,

Patrick Murray. The memorial plaque in Lochranza Parish Church reads 'Patrick Murray, Strabane, Brodick, Chamberlain of Arran 1881-1900'. These dates suggest that the house was built specifically for Murray, although a house of similar plan appears on the first Ordnance Survey Map. This earlier house may have been partly or wholly incorporated into the 1883 scheme. A sketch plan of the house showing the north gable as an addition, together with drawings for stacks and mouldings is signed and dated George Paterson 1883. Since the south gable is dated 1883, this suggests the 'addition' was an amendment to the original 1883 scheme of rebuilding/remodelling whilst still in progress. Internal inspection might determine its development more clearly.

About Listed Buildings

Listing is the way that a building or structure of special architectural or historic interest is recognised by law through the Planning (Listed Buildings and Conservation Areas) (Scotland) Act 1997.

We list buildings of special architectural or historic interest using the criteria published in the Historic Environment Scotland Policy Statement.

The information in the listed building record gives an indication of the special architectural or historic interest of the listed building(s). It is not a definitive historical account or a complete description of the building(s). The format of the listed building record has changed over time. Earlier records may be brief and some information will not have been recorded.

The only legal part of the listing is the address/name of site. Addresses and building names may have changed since the date of listing and if a number or name is missing from a listing address it may still be listed. Listing covers both the exterior and the interior and any object or structure fixed to the building. Listing can also cover structures not physically attached but which are part of the curtilage of the building, such as boundary walls, gates, gatepiers, ancillary buildings etc. The planning authority is responsible for advising on what is covered by the listing including the curtilage of a listed building. Since 1 October 2015 we have been able to exclude items from a listing. If part of a building is not listed, it will say that it is excluded in the statutory address and in the statement of special interest in the listed building record. The statement will use the word 'excluding' and quote the relevant section of the Historic Environment Scotland Act 2014. Some earlier listed building records may use the word 'excluding', but if the Act is not quoted, the record has not been revised to reflect current legislation.

If you want to alter, extend or demolish a listed building you need to contact your planning authority to see if you need listed building consent. The planning authority advises on the need for listed building consent and they also decide what a listing covers. The planning authority is the main point of contact for all applications for listed building consent.
