Details Gate lodge, still in use, built in 1835 by John Smith, Aberdeen. It is a well-detailed single-storey Jacobean gate lodge, sited at the north boundary of Candacraig House (NJ31SW0006) policies, and with a gateway to the north (NJ31SW0182). The building is constructed from red granite ashlar, deep base course, chamfered reveals and raked cills and timber transoms and mullions. It has distinctive curvilinear and straight gables with spike finials, a polygonal-roofed 'viewing' bay with an attached ball-finialled pier, arrowslits and paired diamond-aligned stacks. A multi-pane glazing pattern is used in timber sash and case windows. The graded grey slate roof has cavetto-coped ashlar stacks with cans, and there are stepped ashlar-coped skews with block skewputts and stone finials. The entrance elevation facing the east driveway has a projecting polygonal bay incorporating a coat of arms to a stone pedimented dormer windowhead at forward face. The south elevation has an elaborate curvilinear gable, also bearing a coat of arms, and further stone pedimented windowhead breaking the eaves.
