B Group comprises Marchmont House, Adam Bridge, the Cottages near the Remains of Redbraes Castle, the Dovecot, Gamekeeper's Cottage, Ice House, The Kennel House, 1 & 2 Marchmont Estate Cottages, Redbraes, Stable Courtyard and the Walled Garden (see separate list entries). A relatively late, but well-detailed estate house - the glazing and gabled dormers being particularly notable. An associated brick-built, L-plan former kennel range is set to the front, enclosing a courtyard. Not to be confused with Gamekeeper's Cottage (NT 7392, 4873) which also has a kennel block. The Kennel House is very much a traditional, retrospective design.
