4-bay house (see NOTES).
OLD HOUSE: later 17th century, remodelled later 19th century; harled rubble, ashlar margins. Irregular fenestration, chamfered window margins; early 19th century tripartite in E gable; 4 later 19th century gabled dormers rise from wallhead; single similar dormer to rear; 4- and 12-pane glazing. 1 end and 1 large ridge stack with shaped copes. Small single storey wings advanced from E and W gables forming shallow U-plan court; formerly linked to later house by later 19th century corridor projecting from central entrance (see NOTES). Gabled and piended slate roofs.
Old house re-used from 1873, when Alexander Ross, architect, built a new 2/2 and a half storey house, and rear wings to the front (SE) of
the old house, thus creating an enclosed courtyard with the old
house (from the then service block) to the rear (NW). New house also linked to old by a pitched roof corridor link, extending from centre
bay of new house to old entrance bay on SE elevation of old house.
Old house again detached from new, and being restored, 1992 (link demolished to reveal original central doorpiece on SE elevation
of old house, with dated (1663) marriage lintel).
Aberarder was a former Mackintosh property.
