Mary Erskine School and Ravelston House

Door open days


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.
