The steading is situated immediately to the East of Kinnell House itself (see separate listing) and is constructed on a U-plan. The steading range contains an unusually large granary building of a type of which only 2 examples are thought to remain in the parish (see parallels with Auchlyne which has the other granary building). Dating from around the early to mid 19th century it retains its architectural character and formed an integral part of the estate.

The piended North West range incorporates 2 single storey and attic cottages with gabled dormers to the right. To the left is a single storey section with an arched opening with a timber boarded 2-leaf door in the South West elevation.

The South East range is a 2-storey steading/stables with hayloft above with regular spaced openings, with some louvred and some timber boarded openings to the hayloft. Its South elevation has a hayloft door with a pair of fine depressed-arched openings below. Attached to the East elevation is a later monopitch corrugated-iron addition.

The South West range is a 2-storey and attic granary with slit windows (many now filled in but still discernible). On its North East elevation is a later flat roof brick addition. Situated immediately to the South West of this range is a single storey building with a gable stack to the South East elevation. It presumably had an agricultural function but may have been later converted to form a chapel with the alteration of a window on the South West from a slit to form a Roman cross which has been outlined in granite. An adjacent door with 4-pane glazing to the upper half provides access to the timber floored interior.


Predominantly white harl with the North West elevation of the North West range rubble stone. Predominantly timber sash and case windows, mostly 2-pane over 2-pane, some with horns to the North West range. Slate roofs.
