24 Bog Road, originally built as the manse for the burgh's second Free Church, is of interest as a fine example of a late 19th century Scots baronial house, with its charming Bryce-esque principal elevation, maintaining much of its original detailing. It is a stripped precursor of Kinross's four houses in Edinburgh's Mortonhall Road.
