Statement of Interest

Formerly the gate lodge to Dunnikier House (now hotel), West Lodge was conceived as a small version of Old Dunnikier House (now Path House). Some dormerheads inscribed J(ohn) O(swald). 2 bench marks of interest: official OS mark and mark of W D Sang, a local engineer; latter related to Kirkcaldy tide level, and a different level to OS. The adjacent 'Golden Gates' are listed separately. The same architect presumably added tower and boundary walls at Path House.
