Lorimer House was built in 1905 by renowned Scottish architect Sir Robert Lorimer. Lorimer House was initially built as a red tiled family house standing in the 2 acres of beautiful gardens and mature woodland, looking onto the Pentland Hills.

Many of the original features of the Grade C listed building have been carefully retained and fused with modern comforts of the complimentary designed extension built in 2009.

The home is registered to cater for 37 residents set in luxurious single rooms with en-suite shower wet room facilities. Although we cater mainly for single rooms some of our rooms are of size to accommodate residents with a preference for a shared room such as married couples or close companions.

We have a choice of lounges, which provide an elegant setting to enjoy come company, daily activity or the relaxation of a book from our library facilities. Our ground floor quiet lounge overlooks our beautiful sun patio, our gardens and onto the hills beyond.

Staff are highly trained and motivated to provide a first class individual care service for all our residents and their families.
