Early 19th century. Twin castellated towers, linked by Gilbert Ogilvy, circa 1925. Stugged, ashlar sandstone; chamfered reveals, base course; hoodmoulds to pedestrian doors and lancet windows. Corbelled and gablet coped crenellated parapets. Octagonal towers each 2 storeys, divided by string course. Tall window at ground to roadside in each tower and smaller window at 1st floor; similar arrangement to drive-side. ashlar passage link bridging towers comprised of wide pointed-arch gateway, flanked by pedestrian gateways, each with blank shield above. Parapet raised above drive arch. Square-plan squat single storey tower with angle buttresses adjoined to one octagonal tower, with hoodmoulded doorway partyl obscured by lean-to modern porch to roadside, and with medallion plaque above window to drive-side. Late 19th century gabled addition to E. Doorways to towers under passage link, by gateways.
GATES: probably 17th century, fine 2-leaf wrought-iron gates and ov erthrow to drive arch, and possibly later gates to gateways.
(Original towers possibly designed by John Paterson). Gates to South LOdge (listed separately), of 17th century origin, bear similarities suggesting that they too are early work, probably accompanying an earlier lodge. The linking passage appears so sensitively appropriate and the stone identical that it may be contemporary with the towers, and simply restored by Ogilvy earlier this century. Ogilvy designed Winton Laundry. Listed separately.
