Statement of Interest

B Group with Dinnet House, Stables, Walled garden and North Lodge. The East Lodge and Gates present an especially high quality entrance to the long driveway leading to Dinnet House. There is particularly fine detailing on the towers and the Aberdeen bonding, crenellations, and crow-stepped gables all echo details to be found at Dinnet House. The gates show good decorative iron work.
