GATES: probably circa 1900. Ornate pair wrought-iron (reused)

Gates similar to the pair at Manachie Lodge brought from Gordonstoun to Altyre circa 1950 (Gordonstoun previously belonged to the Gordon Cumming family). They are of good quality workmanship and design; they either date from the 18th century (extensions and alterations of mansion house) or, more likely, from the early 20th century, reproducing 18th century design, and installed during the time of Sir William and Lady (Florence) Gordon Cumming, who carried out much new building at Gordonstoun as at Altyre.
