elevation added slightly later; circa 1770-80 2-storey piend

canted bay appears to be slightly later addition; circa 1785

matching N.W. dining room wing added, with 1-window

pedimented and quoined section between containing entrance

hall and staircase forming symmetrical W. front. Staircase

very plain, lit by ogee-capped lantern light, good ceiling

of late Adam type in dining room applied from moulds and

perhaps a few years later than the room itself. Diagonally

set square piend-roofed game larders flanking gate circa

1800, but chamfered archway of gate itself probably original

1680 work. Cross-corridor in court and poor stuccoed porch at

W. front unfortunate Victorian additions. Harled with margins throughout, coped chimneys, woodwork almost entirely 18th

century except in N. wing.

Statement of Interest

Unusually complex building history. The plasterwork is among

the best of its date in Aberdeenshire; the drawing room

ceiling may be compared with the recently destroyed Odd-

fellows' Hall in Queen Street Aberdeen. The estate was known

as Logie Elphinstone until 1903 when it was sold to Col.

George Milne.
