Tower and turrets at Pinkie House
Tower and turrets at Pinkie House
"Pinkie House, though not very ancient, (as it was built by Alexander Seton, first Earl of Dunfermline, in the year 1622), deserves to be mentioned, because it was a vulgar notion for many years, that there were as many doors and windows in it, as there are days in the year. This has been copied into many of the tours and travels into Scotland, though without foundation; and serves only to prove, that the house of Pinkie, though half the design has only been executed, was one of the first houses of any degree of magnitude, in this part of the country, as it excited the wonder of the common people." -- 'Jupiter' Carlyle, minister of Inveresk, Old Statistical Account, 1792
