Robert Adam castellated addition 1784

Information from Dr A R Somerville, Cheshire, in letter dated 8.8.89.

"On my last trip I did manage to get into Megginch Castle. They have a small lectern dial made in C19 by Lady Strange's grandfather, which I think is listed, but they have now found the C17 original from which itwas copied and which has the the initials SPH and DMS - Sir Peter Day and Dame Maria Scrimgeour, who were married about 1630. They also have a wall dial - overgrown by wisteria - which is flaking badly now and the date has been lost, but Lady Strange remembers it clearly as 1575, so it is a very early one."
