Ravelston House, built c.1800 by Alexander Keith in the late Adam manner, commands magnificent views over Edinburgh and the Pentland Hills. The Victorian wing was added c 1875 and the interior of the house was renovated in Adam-revival style in 1915. The modern buildings, designed by William Kininmonth in 1964, form a cubist-influenced development with white, harled clear-cut geometric shapes set around courtyards to optimise the light. The superb grounds provide excellent sporting facilities and interesting nature trails.
