Statement of Interest

A farmhouse of some importance, located on high ground overlooking the River Deveron; being 2-storey with broadly spaced bays. This was probably the home of the factor to the Haddo Estate (see Forgue Parish, Gordon District). Listed at Category B for the unusual survival of the original window size. Outbuildings and courtyard steading not included

in current listings.
