Barnton House

I found this print of Barnton House circa. 1860 in The History of the Linlithgow and Stirlingshire Hunt 1775-1910. It was the home of my Ramsay of Barnton Ancestors. According to the book Old & New Edinburgh published in 1890, it stood in a magnificently wooded park of 400 acres. In earlier days it had been named Cramond Regis and was once a royal hunting seat. The house was demolished in the early 20th century and modern housing was built on the land.
