Late 18th century. Coped ashlar walls and panelled, corniced gatepiers; vehicular gate to centre, pedestrian gate to right. Spear-headed curved iron gates, 2-leaf to centre, single to pedestrian entrance.

Edmonstone House, formerly the home of the Don-Wauchope family, was demolished in the 1950's. It has been an important house, said to be 400 years old (it appears on John Adair's map of the 1680?s), supposedly restored by 'Mr Adam, architect' after a fire circa 1800, and extended circa 1830 by Burn.
John Laurie's map of 1766 shows a tree-lined avenue leading from the house to the road at the point occupied by the South Gate. A lodge appears on Kirkwood's plan of 1817, and on the OS map of 1850, but the building would appear to have been raised by a storey, with the addition of the barge-boarding and dormers, later in the 19th century.
