(NT 1884 7580) Cramond Regis (NR) (Site of)

OS 6" map (1938)

Barnton House: A large mansion house, built in a castellated style, not exceeding three storeys in height. It has two towers, one on the S, and the other on the E side. It first became the seat of Lord Balmerino in 1623 (MacGibbon and Ross state it was built by him in that year). Part of that building still remains, and considerable additions were made in 1683 by Sir Robert Milne. According to some ancient charters, this was the hunting seat of the kings of Scotland, at which time it was called "Cramond Regis".

Name Book 1850; D MacGibbon and T Ross 1892

Site now occupied by the garden of a modern house; no remains visible.
