Esslemont House, originally built for the Gordons of Hallheads, 1769. Of the original 1769 house only sections of masonry remain, principally in the north front where the fenestration and eaves-course are partly original. (Old photograph shows a two-storey, two-basement, five-window house with piend roof, big chimneys and a centre Doric porch.) J Russell Mackenzie's transformation is big, baronial but somewhat uninspired. An asymmetrical composition in squared granite, of two storeys, basement and attic with a four-storey crenellated tower at south-east with an ogee-capped bell-turret. Staircase reconstruction, c.1958, A G R Mackenzie.
