Archaeology Notes

NO23SW 20.01 2488 3173.

Fragment of castle at N of Pitkindie steading belonging to the Boyds of Pitkindie consisting of moulded jamb and chamfered lintel (not in original position) dated PB 1601.

SDD List 1966

This lintel and contemporary moulded door-jamb have been inserted into a doorway at NO 2488 3173 on the north side of the steading. No other traces or information regarding a possible castle at Pitkindie were found.

Visited by OS (WDJ) 5 February 1969

The stout edge-roll and the lintel that are in re-use in a doorway at the rear of the combine-shed on the N side of Pitkindie are apparently all that remain of Pitkindie tower-house (NO23SW 15). The lintel is wrought with a mitred chamfer and bears an heraldic shield on which there are the initials PB (Patrick Boyd) and the date 1601.

Visited by RCAHMS (IMS) 6 April 1989.
