William Flockhart, for whom JD Peddie designed Cairney House (26 York Road), is listed in the Post Office Directory for 1860 at Lomond House, which makes one suspect that this may also be a Peddie and Kinnear house. The design makes clear reference to that of the Wardie Villas (in Boswall Road), designed circa 1828, which occupy a similar situation at the edge of the raised beach overlooking the sea.
