Plewlands House is a 17th Century mansion lying in the centre of South Queensferry, Scotland. The three-storey L-plan house was built in 1641 for Samuel Wilson and his wife Anna Ponton, whose initials are carved above the entrance along with the motto Spes Mea Christus, meaning My Hope is in Christ. The house features a turnpike stair tower, although this is placed awkwardly mid-way along the northern range, rather than the more usual position at the junction of the ‘L’. This may suggest the east range was a slightly later addition.

In the 18th Century, the house was owned by the Hopes of Hopetoun, in the 19th Century it had passed to the Hamilton -Dundas family, of Duddingston House lying 2 miles (3 km) to the west, but by the end of that century it had been subdivided, with a Mrs Tuck running the Plewlands Laundry from her home.

In 1953, Plewlands House was gifted to the National Trust for Scotland, who restored the property in 1955. Plewlands House is now an Historic Scotland Category A Listed Building (HB Number 40389).
