Description

1651 datestone re-set in porch may date tower. Square tower
house converted probably late 18th century to 3-storey house,
with regular, 2-window east elevation; lower 2-storey house
added to south probably in mid 19th century (but could
incorporate earlier work). Now a farmhouse; low steading
range attached to west.
House: harled; tower has 12-pane sash and case windows with
margins, barge-boarded gabled porch on east wall with
datestone in gable head. 2 windows to north; 2 wall-head
stacks; piended slate roof. Addition has 2 1st floor windows
with gabled dormerheads.
Steading: largely built in earlier 19th century; 3
rectangular ranges built in U-plan around open court;
whitewashed rubble and ashlar dressings. South and west
ranges each single storey (additional door to house in
former), taller north range has square loft windows of barn
to courtyard and cartshed with square-headed openings.

Statement of Interest

Datestone bears initials of James Kirdo and (apparently) of

his wife, probably a Welsh of Colliston.
