Mains of Aswanley
Mains of Aswanley
Mains in Scotland normally refers to the main buildings of a farm. This may include a farmhouse, farm buildings such as a byre and dairy, and workers' cottages.
The mains was usually the principal farm on an estate, or at least the one with the most fertile ground. The Laird's house - if there was one - may have been nearby or some distance away but is not usually part of the mains. The equivalent in England would be a home farm or perhaps a manor.
