NT44NW 47 43239 49511

This two storey house is situated about 218m NE of the village of Fountainhall (NT44NW) on the S bank of the Gala Water. The house has the appearance of a lodge with a verandah, some half-timbering and second storey additions. The current OS digital maps show a large roofed with three smaller roofed buildings at this location.

Allan's Haugh is depicted as two roofed buildings on the 1st Edition of the OS 6-inch map (Edinburghshire, 1854, sheet23), described in the Object Name Book of the Ordnance Survey as ' two thatched cottages on the property of George Thomson of Burnhouse (NT44NW)' (Name Book 1850). The current OS maps annotate the group as 'Allanshaugh'.
