Weymss Castle Steading
Weymss Castle has an early 19th century home farm, courtyard and stables castellated and ornamented with cross arrowslits and a ruined arch and a tower. James Wyatt's nephew Lewis designed a Gothick gateway and lodge for William Weymss and exhibited these at the R.A. Exhibition of 1808. Earlier in 1800 he had published a book of model estate buildings entitled "A Collection of Architectural Designs Rural and Ornamental". So it seems likely that Weymss Castle Steading was his work.
