1864. Late Georgian Italianate survival, 2-storey harled with

red sandstone dressings, flush quoin angles. Symmetrical

4-window E. front, centre 2 project with gable and

semi-circular bay at ground floor. 5-window S. elevation with asymmetrical porch and chimney. Low pitched piend roof with

broad eaves. Simply treated interior.

Statement of Interest

Built by Col. Duff who was then factoring Hatton for his

nephew. Perhaps by A & W Reid who designed the Mausoleum at

Hatton and Auchterless manse at this time. Resemblance to

Gobairdy in Forgue Parish should be noted.
