circa 1820- 30's. Single-storey gatelodge with timber potico of doric columns distyle in antis in barge-boarded entrance gable. Gable ends also deep-eaved with fleur-de-lis barge-boards. Rendered rubble with granite ashlar dressings at main elevations; rendered brick at porch. Consoled window hoods; surviving T-shaped glazing bars (see note); shutters. Slated roof. Two pairs plain granite ashlar gatepiers with flat pyramid caps; pair cast- iron gates, with single pedestrian gates flanking.
One of an identical pair of lodges at Pitfour, the other Bruxie Lodge (item 41). Category C(S) because of neglected condition (1991); in better condition the lodge would merit category B. Original glazing pattern may have consisted in inward-opening casements, with 12 lying panes: 4 above, 8 below horizontal glazing bar (presuming there was also an upper vertical glazing bar originally, now lost).
