Earlier-mid 19th century. Double cast-iron gates with flanking pedestrian gates; lightly droved octagonal sandstone ashlar gatepiers. Base and band course to gatepiers; recessed panels to each side; rounded caps raised at apex. Lattice-design band to gates; spiked finials to this and at apex. Remains of earlier (18th century) gatepost at termination of railed wall to N; small sandstone obelisk with ball finial.
Built as the W entrance to the then privately-owned Pittencrieff House (earlier-mid 17th century onwards) and its grounds. This may be the one shown on Wood's plan of Dunfermline. Both the house and surrounding parkland were bought by Andrew Carnegie in 1902. The grounds were opened as a public park the following year. The park is included in The Inventory of Gardens and Designed Landscapes (see above). See separate list descriptions for other park buildings, including Pittencrieff House and East Gateway.
