Single-storey garage range is hidden from the forecourt by a solid wall pierced
only by 2 gateways with rusticated doorcases; return wall to left now has tall
shuttered sashes similar to those on the main house (q.v.). Linked
pyramid-roofed lodges, of 2 storeys plus attics, have 2-window arrangements of
2-light shuttered casements, and have hipped roof dormers plus an apex stack.
The lodge flanking the forecourt entrance has a pedimented rusticated doorway
and is linked, by a short section of wall containing a further doorway, to one
of the entrance piers bearing a stone eagle by Sir W. Reid Dick. Interiors not
inspected.
