Engraving from Old & New Edinburgh  -   Old Saughton Bridge, Old Saughton House, Barnton House and Cramond Church

The book describes the Barnton House as standing in a magnificently wooded park of 400 acres.  In earlier days it had been named Cramond Regis and was once a royal hunting seat.

The house was demolished in the early 20th century and modern housing was built on the land.
