NJ 3260 4087 This collection was assessed in August–September 2014; it is displayed on wooden planks at ground floor level to the N of a staircase tower. Most of the examples are relatively ordinary, but there are also a few stones which relate to features that are still in situ. These include a section of curved corbelling which relates to the curved corbelling under

the windows. Two sections of cornice also remain, and one very ornate stone which is almost carved in the round. The soot staining, and the complex mouldings, suggest a fireplace location, eg from the Atholl Lodging.

This and other inventories of carved stones at Historic Scotland’s properties in care are held by Historic Scotland’s Collections Unit. For further information please contact
