Rosslynlee Railway Halt

Rosslynlee Asylum

   "The course would have been constructed as a recreation facility for staff and patients. Victorian lunatic asylums had extensive grounds which led to many having a private golf course

In the late 19 century the Scottish Asylums had an interest in recreation which included golf.

Rosslynlee Lunatic Asylum, Midlothian had a golf course built in 1888 and some patients were given the job of maintaining the course."
