Footbridge over the Finlaystone Burn
Footbridge over the Finlaystone Burn
The footbridge, which is marked on the 1:25000 OS map, is not far downstream from a pond (NS3673 : Finlaystone Estate: pond) and a waterfall (NS3673 : Waterfall at Finlaystone Estate). The latter of those pictures might be contrasted with the present image, which was taken at the very end of a long spell of dry weather, when the bed of the burn was almost dry; the rain returned just a couple of hours after this picture was taken.
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.
