18th century. Dome-and-cap ice house located to NW of former Ravelston House; narrow entrance passage built into rock.
A-Group with Ravelston Tower, Mary Erskine School (Ravelston House), Dovecot, Entrance Gateway and Boundary Walls, Garden Walls of No 37 and No 87, Queensferry Road Entrance Gate, ice-houses and 31 & 33 Ravelston Dykes Road. The old tower house at Ravelston was erected by George Foulis, who purchased the estate in 1620. The new mansion house was probably built by Alexander Keith in the late 18th-century; he died in 1792. This ice house belongs to the new house; there is another ice-house in the grounds but this was probably part of the old estate.
