Grange, 1904-9, J N Scott & A Lorne Campbell

A magnificent expression of confidence, Grange bestrides Airngarth Hill, displaying an accomplished re-use of the 17th-century Scots Renaissance details of the second Scots revival. Designed for Henry Moubray Cadell, it is a lovely place; harled with stone dressings, and all the necessary ingredients - open pediments, crowsteps, datestones, crest and balusters. Lavishly furnished interior - plaster ceilings, marble chimneypieces, splendid wood panelling. Conservatory, parterre, rhododendrons, architects' office and terraced ornamental gardens sunk into the hillside.
