There were only three farms known to the North Queensferry and Ferryhills area, Carlingnose Farm being one (Ferry Barns and Cruickness were the others). This farmhouse and related buildings are the only remaining buildings of this type in the area. Geologist, Hugh Miller, one time editor of the Witness, came to stay at Carlingnose Farm in the late 19th century when conducting fieldwork (Cunningham).
