Accessing Scotland's Past Project

The West Lodge is one of two mid-nineteenth century lodges built in the grounds of Mellerstain House.

These lodges replaced two earlier, probably eighteenth century, structures, which were abandoned when the driveway was extended and the route of the road altered to make the house more secluded. The early buildings still survive as ruins within the woodland to the north of the house.
