In 1882-4, Frances Groome's Ordnance Gazetteer of Scotland described Elphinstone like this:
Elphinstone, a property in Airth parish, E Stirlingshire. Passing by marriage to the Tranent Elphinstones about the beginning of the 14th century, it has given them since 1509 the title of Baron, in the peerage of Scotland. See Carberry.
The location is that of Elphinstone Tower.
