Notes: Improvements are being carried out at Hutton Castle, Berwickshire, the property of Lord Tweedmouth. Two new approaches to the castle have been made and a lodge had been constructed at the west drive. Lord Tweedmouth intends to provide extra bedroom accommodation and buildings for servants, etc. Further stable accommodation will also be erected, but arrangements have yet to be made for these. The old tower is to be made habitable, the centre part being raised one storey. The new portions will have asphalte roofs, with embrasures and parapets. There will also be internal alterations. The architect is Mr George Dun of Duns, and the contractors for the work in the centre part of the building are: mason, Henry Steele, Greenlaw; joiner, James Crombie, Duns; slater and plasterer William Fortune, Chirnside; plumber, Abel Ford, Coldstream.
