Commissioned J E Laidlay. Alterations, 1906, Peddie and

Washington Browne, and later by Richardson and McKay.

Plain Baronial version of Bryce revival style. Panel

above doorway may have taken its form from that at Woolmet

House, Midlothian (now dem). Facet-headed sundial on

rough pedestal set by the coach house, may be of early

18th century. Other sculptured stones nearby.
