Artist's Description

The Ross Doocot, in Learmonth Gardens, close to the Strawberry Bank area of Linlithgow, West Lothian, Scotland. Doocot is the Scots word for a building devoted to the domestication of pigeons.

Built by the Barons Ross of Halkhead in the 16th century, to fattened pigeons as part of the winter diet, it is a circular beehive dovecot, containing 370 nesting boxes in its thick rubble walls, bound by three projecting rat-courses.

Learmonth Gardens commemorate Alexander Learmonth, Provost of Linlithgow, 1802-1807. A Provost is the Scots equivalent of a Mayor.

The Ross Doocot is an Historic Scotland Category A Listed Building (HB Number 37468).
