Architecture Notes

ARCHITECT: Charles Souter of Dundee, 1937 - 1939



Apparently Addistoun was lived in by Thomas Hogg during his father's lifetime, before building Newliston (Robert Adam)


Alterations to Addiston House and negotiations for sale.

Murray has turned the House 'almost out at the windows literally for he has slapt it and worked it. I am told he has made two good rooms nearly finished. He has built an extreme good kitchen with beds for servants and in a very good taste and was going on to finish, for at this moment the Hall is in ruins, the windows and doors slapt out in the Front which he was going to modernise.'

Murray has now discharged workmen. Lauderdale is negotiating purchase on Maitland's behalf. Letter James 7th Earl of Lauderdale to Hon. Capt. Patrick Maitland 1774
