N and COURTYARD ELEVATIONS: pair of single storey wings project forward from either side of house. Altered openings; entrance (with late 20th century part-glazed door) to right and pair of windows to left to each wing. Space in between as entrance into courtyard. 1st floor window set back to centre of house; narrow lean-to to ground floor. Irregular openings to courtyard; both wings return for short distance at right angles on N side, partly enclosing it on this side.

INTERIORS: not inspected (1999).
A carefully planned early farm steading; it must have originally been quite handsome with its symmetrical principal elevation with its flanking outer pavilion arrangement. It appears as 'Ibert' Farm on the 1865 OS map; which shows a further range of buildings grouped arround a U-shaped courtyard immediately to the N. An almost identical arrangement is to be found today (1999); however, with the exception of the above described pavilion blocks, the buildings appear to have been radically altered/rebuilt and are not included in the listing. It was built as an estate farm on the lands of the Duke of Montrose.
