EDINBARNET HOUSE, Cochno Road, near Faifley.

ACCESS : This is a nursing home so access is restricted.

B listed. 


Sir John James Burnet (Burnet & Son) designed this fine snecked rubble mansionhouse in 1885 on a picturesque hillside. Although now somewhat secluded, it had lovely views of the distant Clyde and beyond. 

Its architectural style is mock baronial and various attractive features can be found on and within it. The first that one notices on approach is the tower and crow-stepped gables. A Renaissance-style window pediment dated 1758 was incorporated. The MacKenzie crest is set in stone by the fireplace in the main hall.

The building is now a nursing home and has been greatly enlarged and modernised. 

A portico capital.

The date stone of 1758 built in to the later building.

Edinbarnet looks a little mysterious from the footpath nearby.
