History of the Property
Charles Augustus Carlow, Chairman and Managing Director of The Fife Coal Company, Shotts Iron Company, The Scottish Mine Owners Defence and Mutual Insurance Association commissioned the building of the house for his family and it was completed around 1890. As Victorians did at the time, he imported trees and shrubs to form the grounds and garden areas including the Victorian Walled Orchard Garden which, like the main building is listed.

He built other stately homes in and around Scotland and as he moved he gave "Carlow House" to the Fife Mining Industry as a respite home for injured miners. As the industry flagged, the house was taken over by Fife Council and was latterly known as Linnwood Hall, a residential school for boys with various troubled backgrounds.

The listed building insurance and property management of the house is approx. £165 per month, this also covers the outside lighting, garden maintenance, internal hall cleaning, and stained glass window cleaning and other necessary repairs. EPC C.
