Statement of Special Interest
No longer a working farm, Fogorig has been subdivided, leaving the main house separate from the farm buildings set to its W. Nevertheless, the house remains much as it was when first complete, with good detailing throughout. Although Fogorig farm is shown on earlier maps, such as Blackadder's 1797 map, the house itself derives from a later date, not appearing on an Ordnance Survey map until 1900. Rutherfurd refers to a Mr Thomas Allan as farmer here in 1866.
