Factors House (16)


Factors House

Note the building on your left hand side at the bottom of Factors Park. This was the house and office of the estate factor and it was from here that they would have managed Thirlestane Estate.

From here, the trail can be extended to take in a visit to Thirlestane Castle. If you wish to extend your walk please refer to the notes on pages 18 and 19.


Maitland Family Arms

Turn left and walk past the high wall of the Factors House. Note the coat of arms above the gate on your left. This is part of the Maitland family arms from Thirlestane Castle.
