No Contributor Year: 201035 Hinge at Badenyon Steading
Decorative hinge on door of Badenyon Steading.
This may be a relic from the Old Glenbuchat Castle
" Little visible evidence of the castle remains apart from a large wall forming an impressive terraced bank, and probably the steading door hinge, described in The Book of Glenbuchat as a very fine wrought-iron hinge band, 1ft 11 in length, ending in a trefoiled point: this is evidently old work, taken from a door of consequence, and is probably a relic of the castle. It was previously recorded as part of the steading at Begg's House, but has always been situated at this earlier steading, and was recently carefully reinstated after replacement of the timber door.
