2 ranges of mainly rubble buildings with mill building to S and kiln range to N with cottage (including modern post office) adjoining to NE.
MILL RANGE: enclosed water wheel flanked by single-storey threshing barn to W and grain mill and stores/ancillary buildings to E. Water wheel in small rubble-walled wheelhouse with graded slate lean-to roof. High breast-shot wheel with wooden paddles, arms and sole plates, cast iron sideplates, hub and axle. Grain mill with most machinery surviving.
Adjoining grain mill to E single-storey rubble barn/storage area. All with slated roofs.
TO N: Kiln range with 2-storey painted rubble kiln with cast-iron columns supporting perforated sheet metal kiln floor, slate roofs with ventilator. To W of kiln, single storey and loft range with rubble-built N wall to rear (built up from rising ground) and open cart shed to ground, granary in loft with front walls of vertical timber board, corrugated-iron roof.
To W tall single-storey garage/storage building; brick party wall, otherwise vertical timber boarding with corrugated-iron roof.
MILL COTTAGE: single storey and attic painted rubble, sash and case windows with plate glass glazing pattern. Gablet dormers to N. Slate roofs, raised skews, ceramic ridge end coped stacks. Lean-to single storey extension to S.
The importance of this group of buildings lies in the surviving mill machinery. This survival of a timber-framed water wheel is thought to be unique in Scotland. The position of the kiln in a detached range of buildings is also rare.
