Logan House


(Logan Tower)

A modest property in Midlothian, Logan House overlooks the Logan Burn in the Pentland Hills between the Loganlea Reservoir and Glencorse Reservoir, 2½ miles (4 km) northwest of Penicuik. Little remains of the tower built in the 13th C. for the St. Clair family. The St. Clairs of of Rosslyn were granted the Barony of Pentland in the 11th C. and built a tower here c.1230. This was extended with the building of a second tower in the 15th C. The lands passed to the Gibsons in 1680 and then to William Ferguson of Raith in 1782. Both towers were in ruins by the later 19th C. and were being quarried for stone. The newer tower was demolished in 1878 and the older in 1915.
