Longcroft House

A mansion in Linlithgow Bridge, most likely designed by the master of the Scots-Baronial style David Bryce (1803-76), Longcroft House now lies on Longcroft Gardens marooned amongst a modern housing estate, a half-mile (1 km) west of the centre of Linlithgow. It was built in sandstone c.1850 for Alex Cowan of Penicuik, who owned the nearby paper-mill, and extended c.1868 for Thomas Chalmers who had bought both house and mill in 1866. The house takes the form of a two-storey Victorian hunting lodge with deeply overhanging eaves, incorporating a doo'cot to the southeast and with a three-storey square Italianate tower to the southwest. The house is now B-listed.
