NS 8161 4635 A small trench was excavated in the basement of Craignethan Castle on 16 December 2008 to allow the insertion of a concrete base for a new handrail for the existing steps. Modern deposits of gravel and bedding overlay mortar debris, probably from the stair’s construction, under which there was a compact layer of imported clay.
