18th century; round-arched entrance gateway crowned with ball finials; roll-moulding to archway. High coped rubble wall adjoining.
A-Group with Ravelston Tower, Mary Erskine School (Ravelston House), Dovecot, 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. The gateway maybe modelled from 17th century courtyard entrance.
