| Not Applicable when venue selected above

Mayshiel Lodge was completed in 2001 to a design by Craig Hamilton, with architectural references from Auchindinny by Sir William Bruce and Bankton Head at Prestonpans. The design also picks up on general references to early Scottish 18th Century Palladian Country Houses. The design of the Chapel again draws on the architectural language associated with the early 18th century classical tradition in Scotland. The Chapel was consecrated by Cardinal Keith O'Brien in August 2006.

Nisbet House is a 17th Century house to which a vast Georgian tower has been added. The mansion was built by Alexander Nisbet of that Ilk c.1609 to replace an earlier castle. in 1774 a large tower was added to the west end to provide additional public rooms.
