The property, set in gardens, parkland and wooded policies extending to 24.85 acres, was sold recently for an estimated £900,000 after Girlguiding Scotland made the decision to close it because of under-use and the impact of the coronavirus pandemic.

The applicants are Lindsey and Kevin O’Neill, of Albany Street in Edinburgh.
