Accessing Scotland's Past Project

The Hundy Mundy is a folly which forms part of the designed landscape associated with Mellerstain House. It lies to the south of the house, and has been attributed to William Adam, who carried out the initial work on Mellerstain House and its surrounding grounds.

Built in a Gothic style, Hundy Mundy takes the form of a tall arched structure, flanked by square turrets which each sport pointed finials. It created a focal point in the designed landscape.
