History of Carrick Lodge Guest House

Carrick  

Carrick Lodge was originally a manse to the free Church at Corriegills.

In those days manses were made so big and with many rooms because the minister was expected to provide shelter to travellers and any other people who found themselves without a home for the night.

After it was no longer required by the Church it became a boarding house so has always provided accommodation to visitors.

The picture on the left shows the original Church which was burnt to the ground. A new Church was built using the original gable and is still there today. It is now no longer a church.
