Statement of Interest

Group with Edinglassie House, Gate Lodges, Stable and Garage Block, and Walled Garden. The early date of Keeper's Cottage makes it of special interest in the Edinglassie Estate group; it is a building of some quality and may have been the factor's house. Stone windowheads, similar to those at Keeper's Cottage can be seen on the late 18th century east wing of Edinglassie House. Keeper's Cottage is sited to the north of the stable and garage wing, and the old laundry, close enough to have a good view of these buildings but far enough away to afford some privacy, and on the short track which leads to the 20th century kennels bothy and turbine house.
