Blackburn House was built in 1772 by George Moncrieff, a merchant who had made his fortune in the West Indies. Two hundred years later, in 1972, it fell derelict, and remained that way for over a quarter of a century. Thanks to the efforts of the Scottish Historic Buildings Trust, it has been restored and brought back into use. It won the Georgian Group’s best Restoration of a Georgian Country House Award in 2008.
