Abstract:
Addyman Archaeology were commissioned to undertake an analytical assessment of Crommey Castle (historically alternatively spelt Crombie), near Aberchirder in Banffshire; work included the production of phase plans at three floor levels. Crommey Castle was in all likelihood erected between 1543 and 1547 by James Innes. Today, appreciation of the building is masked by a series of extensions dating to 1820, 1860 and 1910. The building is an excellent example of a 16th century tower house that preserves with little subsequent alteration (except to the upper works) a wealth of early features and details. It is also notable for the survival of interior plastered surfaces. The tower preserves extensive evidence for an important remodelling, perhaps of 17th century date, that involved major modification of the roof structure and reduction and reordering of the original wall heads. Crommey is also notable for the long history of attempted repair, these for the most part benign. The works in the mid 1930s are particularly notable even though unfinished. The associated survey drawings by John Wilson Paterson include an important as-existing record of the building before these works began.
