Mayfield House, Portlaw:

                                                                                                                                                             Mayfield House, the once beautiful home of the Malcomson family, founders of the adjacent cotton mill. Purchased some time ago with the idea of converting it into a first-class hotel, the project now seems to be in doubt according to rumours circulating (unverified).  An infestation of Japanese Knotweed is being blamed.  (This image given a half page in the Feb. issue of Carrick's THREE COUNTIES magazine).

Once-abandoned cottage

 Am glad to say the building has since been restored and is now lived in!
