See NS3673 : The old laundry house for an outside view.

The larger of the rooms of the old laundry house is at the southern end, as shown here. At the far end of the room, on the right, and now barred, is the place where, weather not being favourable for drying clothes, racks would be pulled out on rails (note the grooves on the floor); the clothes would be put on them, and the racks would be pushed back again, and the doors closed, so that the clothes would be dried by heat from a furnace.

At the far left is part of the wheel of a mangle. See NS3673 : The old laundry house: interior for the other room.
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.
