RCAHMS 1933 (NO 1281 0211) During the 16th century a separate family (Douglas) residence connected with the Lochleven estate, existed close to the western shore of Loch Leven. From an exploration made a few months ago (c.1900) it was found to have been situated to the north of the north-east corner of the present garden at the back of Kinross House, indeed part of the wall of that garden seems to have been the original enclosing wall of the garden in front of the manor. Like the present house it appears to have stood with its back to the lock, and all along the back of the building there has evidently been a range of offices facing the loch. R B Burns 1901 The present Kinross House is in use as a private residence. There is now no trace of the earlier 16th century house, but Mrs Purvis-Russell Montgomery (Kinross House) says that a crude stone cross, 1.8m high, at NO 1274 0216 marks its site. Visited by OS (WDJ) 19 December 1963.

Photographs, illustrated published articles, French post cards etc all relating to carving in wood or stone. Many pages at the beginning show fireplaces with design or order numbers and have dimensions and prices written in, as if it were to be a pattern book. Further pages include fireplaces in situ, details of carved doors and balusters etc (some in museums, some French) and interior views, many of them in Scottish houses. The Country Life articles date between 1910 and 1918. Loose pages of a gazetteer have been used as markers, and at the first page is a pencil design by Lorimer for a bed-spread, loose.
