Rosebery Steading

In 1805 the earl of Rosebery built himself a new farmyard. To create the greatest impact the steading was placed opposite the main gates to Rosebery House, the earl's principal  seat  in Mid-Lothian.. The steading is arranged around an enclosed courtyard. Opposite the  entrance,  the clock tower incorporates a doocot and has a fantastic tall spire. The screen walls are castellated in the Gothick style. Rosebery Steading is one the of the finest and most iconic farm steadings in Scotland.
