Circa 1876. Low, coped, coursed and tooled pink sandstone walls flanking entrance to West Lodge; modern swept decorative iron railings with spearheaded finials above. Pyramidal-capped, square-plan sandstone pier to outer right; lodge adjoined to outer left. Corniced, square-plan, channelled pink sandstone ashlar gatepiers flanking central opening; 2-leaf decorative iron gates with spearheaded finials.
B Group comprises 'Hutton Castle', 'Hutton Castle, Boundary Walls, Railings, Pier, Gatepiers and Gates at West Lodge', 'Hutton Castle, East Lodge', 'Hutton Castle, Quadrant Walls, Gatepiers and Gates at East Lodge', 'Hutton Castle, Walled Garden' and 'Hutton Castle, West Lodge' - see separate list entries. Set to the SW of Hutton Castle and now owned by the nearby West Lodge (1999). Both the lodge and this entrance are thought to date from around 1876 when Sir Dudley Coutts Marjoribanks of Guisachan purchased the Hutton estate (then known as 'Hutton Hall') for ?50,000. A photograph dated 1984 and held in the NMRS shows Berwickshire Bears, like those above the gatepiers to the E, originally surmounted these piers. The modern railings (circa 1990) are said to be copies of the originals. The drive which leads from the lodge to the castle is no longer in use (1999).
