Laird of Burnbrae

Laird of Burnbrae was a hereditary title in Scotland that was held by several generations in the Primrose family. It is unclear what portions of land the Lairds of Burnbrae held; however, the Rampant Scotland website [http://www.rampantscotland.com/placenames/placename_baltimore.htm] defines the Burnbrae area as: Dumfries & Galloway, Fife, Perth & Kinross, South Ayrshire, South Lanarkshire, West Dunbartonshire, and West Lothian.

The Lairds of Burnbrae resided in Tulliallan, formerly in [ [http://www.fifefhs.pwp.blueyonder.co.uk/parishmap.htm former Fife Family History Society site] ] Perthshire, Scotland although in some early sourcesFact|date=March 2008 Tulliallan is cited as part of Fife, where it currently lies. The family is related to the Lord Dalmeny (a subordinate title of the Earl of Rosebery), whose family surname is also "Primrose".
