S (COURTYARD) ELEVATION: symmetrical with advanced gabled ranges flanking recessed central range. Gable to left with 2 square-headed cart arches, centre pier with decorative contrasting snecking giving way to similar voussoired joint above between huge tooled granite lintels and 2 loft openings above. Gable to right with doorway at left, evidence of blocked opening at right and 2 loft openings above. Variety of openings (some blocked) to recessed face and returns.

Group with Badenyon, Begg's House. Begg's House Steading forms part of an important early group at the site of Badenyon Castle. This example at Begg's House is a fine example of a larger more prosperous farm than most throughout the Glen, and its decaying state is indicative of the common decline experienced during the twentieth century. The remaining structures in the Badenyon group, Begg's House, Jeannie's House, Jeannie's House Steading and Jeannie's Mother House are also listed buildings.
The original listing for Begg's House Steading mentions an early doorhinge which probably came from Badenyon Castle. The hinge is to be found at the steading at Jeannie's House, and has always been at that location.
