Candacraig House, 1835, John Smith. The house itself is much remodelled. The present two-storey asymmetrical harled

structure is a delightful reconstruction by A G R Mackenzie of Smith's Jacobean house (which had itself incorporated a house of earlier date). The west wing was added, 1900, by George Gordon and partly remodelled, 1956, after a fire. It has an angular and all too obtrusive bay rising above the wallhead. The east lodge is a single-storey red granite ashlar

Jacobean joy by John Smith with elaborately pedimented windows and captivating miniature Dutch gable. The offices are a single-storey-and-attic harled court of c.1835 and later; good stone dormer heads in coachhouse.
