Circa 1607 in origin; later re-working. Square-plan, walled garden (approximately 6400m?). Rubble walls enclose site; coped gatepiers and arched wrought-iron gates to entrances at NE and SW elevations; ball finials to gatepiers to NE elevation; obelisk finials resting on ball-feet to SW elevation; remains of 2 summerhouses to SW and SE corners; 2 advanced alcoves to SE and NW walls.
A Group with Castle Kennedy (see separate list description). The garden walls were probably built when the castle was improved circa 1607 and appears marked into quarters on the 1st edition Ordnance Survey map, 1848. The gatepiers to the SW elevation with obelisk finials resting on ball-feet mirror those found near the entrance to Castle Kennedy, dating from the earlier 18th century.
