Rosebery House

The estate from which the Earls of Rosebery take their title, lying a mile (1.5 km) southwest of Temple in Midlothian. Originally the site of Clerkington House, owned by the Hepburn family, which was either demolished around 1805 or incorporated in the house built for Archibald Primrose, the 4th Earl of Rosebery (1783 - 1868) by William Atkinson in 1812. The house has been much altered subsequently and is now of little architectural interest. In marked contrast, the steading is impressive. It was built c.1805 in a late 17th Century style and features a clock-tower and spire, which also functions as a doo'cot.
