Celtic paving and folly
Celtic paving and folly
The small building in the background is a hexagonal NS3673 : Folly; see that link for further information. The Celtic paving in the foreground was created at about the same time, between 1984 and 1986.

Beside the main road (A8), some signs for the Finlaystone Estate include a reference to this paved area, in that they feature exactly the same Celtic knot pattern as is set out here on the ground.
Finlaystone House and Estate
See LinkExternal link for the history of the house, and LinkExternal link for information about the surrounding estate. Finlaystone House (c.1764), standing on the site of an earlier castle, was originally the work of John Douglas, but alterations and additions were made c.1872, and more extensively, by John James Burnet, from 1898-1903.
