Abstract:
Prior to restoration work on the N range of Pitsligo Castle, test pits were required to be dug to examine the foundations. Four pits on the N side of the N range N wall showed that the wall had been built on boulder clay and bed rock at between 100 and 180mm below the present surface. A test pit inside the courtyard, by the S face of the S wall of the N range, revealed a stone drain running alongside the wall below a series of capstones. At least one of the capstones extended below the wall, suggesting that the drain was built before the wall, but possibly as part of the same episode of building, to stop water flowing from the courtyard into the guest chambers of the N range. The drain had been re-lined with clay pipes in the 19th/20th century.
