Statement of Interest

Group with Edinglassie House, Gate Lodges, Keeper's Cottage, Stable and Garage Block. A fine early walled garden sited to the west and north of Edinglassie House. The southern edge of the walled garden, house, and what is now the stable range, form an imposing line facing south across the Ernan Water which joins the Burn of Moniewhitt to the southeast and flows on to the River Don. The 1869 Ordnance Survey map shows a grid pattern of formal planting within the garden, this is partly reflected today with box hedges and pathways. The 1902 edition shows a well in the northern quadrant.
