The Gargoyles and Cannons of Craigievar Castle

Craigievar has been a striking feature of the Aberdeenshire landscape for 400 years. In 2009 RCAHMS worked in partnership with the National Trust for Scotland to make a detailed record of the building's decorative stone cannons and gargoyle waterspouts during a major project to refurbish the exterior of the castle. This highly-illustrated guide examines the intricate designs and fascinating iconography of Craigievar's carved stones.
