RAVELSTON HOUSE – RAVELSTON DYKES ROAD
Built around 1790 for an Alexander Keith, Knight Marischal of Scotland. Sir Walter Scott was a regular visitor to the house. In the early 20th century part of the estate was sold off and in the early 1960s the Stewart-Clark family sold the remainder to the Edinburgh Merchant Company and in 1964 Mary Erskine school took over. The house is now home to the principal's study as well as several other departments. In the grounds is Ravelston Tower, part of old Ravelston House built in 1622 for Sir George Foulis.
