1750 and later; coped rubble walls (some sections harled) separate Banff Castle from Castle Street, return S to Old Castle Gate and Water Path. Further stretch of walling fronts George Street and encloses policies to rear of High Shore.
The original entrance to the Castle from the S was via Old Castle Gate. The Earl of Seafield laid out Castle Street in l750 and constructed that stretch of policy walls in that year; soon after the completion of the Banff Castle mansion in l752 he would have enclosed his property and is known to have planted trees.
