Archaeology Notes

NT33NW 20 33743 37038.

(NT 3374 3708) The central block of Pirn House was built by Alexander Horsburgh in 1700. The E and W wings were probably added soon after 1733. Further additions were made in 1748, and minor alterations made between 1752 and 1778. It appears to have been relatively undisturbed during the 19th and 20th centuries; it was demolished in 1950, the site now being covered by a school.
