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). Set to the E of Marchmont House, Redbraes is thought to be the work of Sir Robert Lorimer, who remodelled Marchmont House for its then owner, Robert Finnie McEwen (1914-20) and, it is assumed, also designed the nearby, similarly detailed Old Coach House (listed with the Stable Courtyard). With many of its original features intact, Redbraes remains a good example of Lorimer's work.
