Sundial, Lennoxlove: This sundial stands in the formal garden E of Lennoxlove. On a base of two octagonal steps stands a lady in 17th century court dress, supporting a polygonal block with seventeen dials, on her head. The figure is 3ft 11 1/2 ins high, the dial stone 1ft 2 1/2 ins high, and the steps are each 8 ins high. It comes from Northbar House, Renfrewshire (NS46NE 3) and bears the initials of Donald MacGilchrist, who built that house, with the date 1679.
