Description

A picturesque example of a 17th century Socttish country
house. Originally L shape, with a round tower at the north
west angle and a square tower at the diagonally opposite
angle; main body had the usual vaulted ground floor, with
hall and other rooms on the first and second floors; to this
central block, various additions have been made at different
times; one of these extends towards the east and has a round
tower attached at the north-east angle; another is added
towards the south and has a lower but very picturesque round
tower at the south west angle - The whole of these erections
combine to form a very pleasing composition.
