Rosehauch House. looks like the 1950's
Picture added on 15 July 2010 at 07:01
This was the prelude to the enactment of a great tragedy.
The entire contents of Rosehaugh House, including marble fireplaces, stairways, wall panelling, furniture, carpets and tapestries, china, silverware and decorative ornaments were sold by auction in the late 50's, all prior to the wanton eradication of history, in the disgraceful destruction of this beautiful mansion by its new owners the Eagle Star Insurance Company.
This was autocracy at its finest, as I do not recall any consultation with the people of the village, and any local government who might have had the authority to influence the course of events, remained conspicuously silent.

What house did the farmers go to pay there rent?

Before the Eagle Star purchased the property, the estate factor lived at the house called Gowan Brae on the Braehead where the estate office was also housed. Various rents were deposited and administered at this office where a full time secretary was employed.....one factor was Mr. Wallace in the late 50's, and then replaced by Mr. Gowan in the early 60's.
