Carnousie New House
A plan and elevation of Carnousie New House. Designed by Archibald Simpson for a wealthy sea merchant called Captain Alexander Grant. Building began around the 1830s. It was located near Forglen.

Captain Grant lost his fortune and was forced to sell the property before its completion. The house was neglected and eventually largely demolished around 1930. Legend has it that the stones were used in the construction of Elphinstone Hall.

(Information taken from Archibald Simpson, Architect: His Life and Times 1790-1847 by David Miller. See this work for further description of the building.)
