the entrance gateway
to Glencairn


Piers and walls with gateway. Mid-late C19. Granite ashlar. Cast iron railings
and gates.
The entrance forms a screen. Four rusticated square plan piers, about 3 metres
high, with modillion cornice and stepped caps surmounted by urns. The central pair
of piers have pair of cast iron gates with trefoil finials to the top rails. Low
battered ashlar wall with moulded coping swept forward to right and left with plain
spear-headed railings, up to the outer piers. The ashlar wall is continued to right
as a boundary wall, on a rusticated plinth with stepped moulded copings and the
railings removed. This extends about 20 metres with one ashlar pier on a battered
rock-faced plinth with blind panels, cornice and knob finial; terminal pier in rock-
faced rubble with pyramidal cap.
