Later 19th century cylindrical dovecot. Rubble walling with
polished rusticated margins. Single doorway, slit windows.
Timber bracketted eaves, conical slate roof; slate-hung
piended dormer as flight hole. No nest boxes surviving.
Though modest in scale, freestanding dovecots are a rarity in
Stewartry and Dalshangan is an unusually late example.
