Vogrie retains much of its character as a Victorian parkland estate, with sweeping carriage drives, beautifully landscaped vistas, an original walled garden and the baronial-style Vogrie House. Built in 1876 by Andrew Heiton, Town Architect for Perth, the house is a fine example of Victorian baronial splendour and one of the best surviving examples of Heiton's work. The house was a typical country house with a library, servants quarters and many bedrooms. Transformed in the 1920s into a nursing home for the Royal Edinburgh Hospital, the house was sold on to local government in the 1950s and had a role during the Cold War as a control centre for communications.
