A G R Mackenzie, circa 1956. Fine gateway to Candacraig House sited close to East Lodge. Tall square-section, squared rubble piers with broken pediment tops and adjoining boundary walls flanking 2-leaf ironwork gates with Wallace family crest 'An ostrich in full flight proper' and Falconer family crest 'A demi-angel praying between two sprigs of laurel proper'.
These fine gates and gatepiers present a dramatic entrance to the Candacraig policies and the nearby East Lodge of 1835 by John Smith of Aberdeen. Although known as the East Gate, it is sited at the northern edge of the policies. An identical gateway (listed separately) is located at the western end of the policies, but there is no West Lodge. A G R Mackenzie had been commissioned to rebuild Candacraig House after a fire in 1956. The owners at this period were the Wallace family, whose family crests appear on the gates.
