Carriden House Sundial (W4)

On the west wing of Carriden House a vertical sundial occupies a central location level with the top of the first-floor windows.  The Roman numerals are rather worn – V to XII on the left and I to VI on the right.  The faint traces of the inscription across the top are illegible.  The three-storey wing dates to 1682 and its six bays were clearly meant to impress.  It is highly likely that the sundial was an original feature.
