NT27SE 143.01 28553 74602 Walled Garden and Garden Houses

Late 16th century, but much altered. 1849-50.

Situated near the old village of Restalrig, Craigentinny House (sic) was originally a typical laird's house of the late 16th century; parts of it were altered early in the 19th century. The gabled roof of the wing was altered, the stair-turret heightened, and the former windows refashioned. The "castellations" at the E gable are also modern. The rubble-built walls rise to three storeys and an attic. The N face has not been much altered. The roof is drained by large cannon-like spouts, after the fashion of the old square keeps, but this may not be original. There is now no vaulting internally where there has been much alteration.

RCAHMS 1951; N Tranter 1962-70.

Architect: David Rhind.
