Circa 1890. Picturesque, rustic single storey summerhouse, in Arts and Crafts style, built into garden wall to the river to E of Glenarch House. Four tree trunk columns support loggia with timber-framed central gable. Central open area below with window to river, flanked by 2 rooms each with canted fronts, leaded pane windows incorporating stained glass roundels. Complex roof structure, red tiles, leaded flats over loggia at either side, ashlar coped rear wall, large ball finials to end gables adjoining garden wall, with doorway to river at right.
Sited in the garden of Glenarch House. This is a good example of a transient type of structure.
