Type Standing Building Recording


NT 4118 5911 Cakemuir Castle (NT45NW 1.00) is a 16th-century tower house with later additions forming an L-shaped plan. A standing building survey of the domestic W-facing elevation in July 2006 in advance of the erection of a new extension recorded blocked windows and building fabric. An evaluation in October 2006 on the footprint of the new building site revealed no archaeological features.
