    Balrossie School was originally built as an orphanage by The Sailors Orphans Society of Scotland. It was designed by Glasgow Architect, David Barclay and built in 1898-1899. Money to build the orphanage was raised by various donors and was designed to home 82 boys and 32 girls.

    It remained an orphanage until the 1930's, when it was purchased by The Boys Brigade and utilised as a training centre. In the 1960's, it was converted to a LIst D, residential school for boys.

    It closed in 1997.
