Scope and Content The Whitehouse, Whitehouse Road, Cramond, Edinburgh, from the south-west The Whitehouse, an early 17th-century laird's house, stands on the west side of Whitehouse Road. The original house, built for the Primrose family, was extended in the 18th and late 19th centuries, and carefully restored in the 1990s. This white-harled house, possibly begun c.1615 as a plain L-plan house with a stair-turret in the south-west corner, was extended in the 18th century. In 1895-1901, the architects, MacGibbon & Ross, added the bay windows. The house has interesting relics in the garden, including an unusual baluster sundial, dated 1732, and a stone pillar with jougs (Scots), an iron collar and chain used to fasten sinners by the neck outside a church in order to expose them to ridicule.
