Symington House is on the Gala Water opposite Torquhan.

Symington is a good example of a compact early 19th century Georgian country house occupying a fine setting overlooking the Galawater. It is notable for its refined massing and detailing to principal elevation. The substantial classical doorpiece and diminuitive flanking pavilions add further interest. The black whinstone masonry is brick-cut and of considerable quality. Farming at Symington dates back to at least the 17th century. There was no mansion house on the estate of Symington until the present house was built by General John Pringle. The date of 1812 is inscribed on one of the quoins to the left front of the building. The house was built on the site of an earlier steading at Symington, depicted on William Roy's military map of 1745.

John Julius Pringle

PRINGLE, John Julius, lawyer, born in Charleston, South Carolina, 22 July, 1753; died there, 17 March, 1843. His father, Robert (1702-'76), came from Scotland to South Carolina about 1730, became a merchant in Charleston, and in 1760-'9 was a justice of the court of common pleas. The son was graduated at the College of Philadelphia in 1771, and read law with John Rutledge and in England, where his published articles in defence of colonial rights attracted attention. At the beginning, of the American Revolution he went to France, and in 1778 he became secretary to Ralph Izard, United States commissioner in Tuscany. Returning home by way of Holland and the West Indies, he was admitted to the bar in 1781, and attained high rank in his profession. In 1787-'9 he was speaker of the state assembly, and in the latter year he served for a short time as United States district attorney, by special request of Gen. Washington. In 1800 Thomas Jefferson, then secretary of state, appointed him to report on any infractions of the treaty with Great Britain that might occur in his state, and from 1792 till 1808 he served as attorney-general of South Carolina. In 1805 President Jefferson tendered him the attorney-generalship of the United States, but family reasons induced him to decline. Mr. Pringle was for four years president of the trustees of the College of Charleston.
