Abstract:
Jacobs Engineering UK was commissioned by Transport Scotland to carry out a level 2 Standing Building Survey at the archway within the grounds of St. Margaret's Hope (NGR: NT 12308 81105). The archway is a Category B-Listed structure and although there is no record noting its construction, it is presumed that the original arch was contemporary with St. Margaret's Hope House, which was build in 1829 by the renowned architect Ernest Newton. As it currently stands, the archway spans the main approach road to the house in a niche cut into the surrounding bedrock. From edge to edge the archway measures 5.36m and the attached battlement with crenulations measures 5.95m. Within its recent history it is visible that the upper portion of the archway has been demolished and subsequently re-erected as the stone work has not weathered greatly and there are modern concrete blocks incorporated within the segmented arch.
