House of the Binns

The Binns is a fine house with a hilltop view of the Firth of Forth. It underwent reconstruction in 1630 with subsequent alterations and belonged to General Tam, a staunch supporter of Charles I who was executed in 1649. Of particular interest are the plasterwork ceilings and the many mementoes of the Royalist General.
