There has been a House at Limefield for several hundred years and the present building dates for 1805 when it was built for Mr GloagWS an Edinburgh Lawyer and later a Judge. In 1855 it became the home of the Chemist James ‘Paraffin’ Young who founded the Paraffin Industry and was responsible for creating the very first oil refinery in the world. James Young was also a good friend of the legendary explorer and adventurer Dr David Livingston, who often stayed at Limefield and planted the large Corstorphine Sycamore tree in the centre of the front garden in 1860. He also gave Young sketches and watercolours of the the Victoria Falls in Africa who then built his own Victoria Falls in the grounds of the house. Limefield has been a family home since 1999
