against west most bay, porch in re-entrant angle, and walls
heightened with saw-toothed skews. Sash windows with lying
pane glazing. End stacks. Steading: tall north range with
barn cartshed, 3-bay stable and glazed loft openings. Other

haybarn built against west wall of former, cart opening at east
