Long Description:

Made from solid wood, naturally, these two doors measure over 12 ft in height and provided access to the aviary that once existed here. As one arrives at Dundurn Castle from the main parking lot to the West, this is usually the first thing seen. However, access to this area is not possible and the doors are rarely open.
