Architecture Notes

Incorporated into a wing on the W side of the 18th-century house (NO14SW 62) there is a dormer pediment (wrought with a mitred-chamfer) bearing the date 1661 and the initials GN/MK, and beneath it a lintel (wrought with a bull-nosed moulding) bearing the date 1674 and the initials DK (David Kinloch); both have probably been removed from the earlier house (NO14SW 37). A number of jamb-stones wrought with bull-nosed mouldings are incorporated in outhouses to the rear of the main block. Both the walled garden (NO 1224 4210) and precinct wall of Gourdie (NO 1255 4223) may incorporate fabric of late 17th- or early 18th-century date.

The Kinlochs have been in possession of Gourdie since at least 1603; the house and policies are depicted by Roy.
