Recent gatepiers and wall to NW are not part of Statutory List. The farm to W of South Fod House is also not part of the Statutory List; however it is worth noting that a stone inscribed 'IS EH 1693' is set into the W elevation of the E range. South Fod is depicted on Ainslie's 1775 Map as 'Southfoad'. The house may incorporate earlier material.
