GATES, GATEPIERS AND BOUNDARY WALLS: 2-leaf decorative ironwork gates to SE of lodge, flanked by 2 circular-plan granite gatepiers, coped with conical pebbled caps and oval finials; convex quadrant walls flanking gates to left and right, coursed tooled granite, with semi-circular pebbled coping; circular-plan terminations, coped with conical pebbled caps and oval finials.
B-Group with Rhu-na-haven and Walled Garden (see separate listings). Situated on the banks of the River Dee, Rhu-na-haven and its surrounding buildings survive almost completely intact. "The walls were built in the manner traditional in the district, of great [granite] blocks roughly axed on the face" (Hussey p73), indeed the use of granite by Lorimer is probably limited to Rhu-na-haven thus making them quite unique. The river cobbles on the boundary walls are similar to the boundary walls at Struan Hall (see separate listing), and also the West Lodge at Aboyne Castle (see separate listing).
