4-, 12- and 15-pane glazing patterns in timber sash and case, and pivot windows. Small grey slates. Coped ashlar ridge stacks with cans.

Statement of Interest

Group with Edinglassie House, Keeper's Cottage, Stable and Garage Block, and Walled Garden. The entrance to Edinglassie House is the best of any in the parish with its fine pair of well-detailed ashlar gate lodges. The Glen Ernan road forks to join a long driveway with the gates and lodges sited at the south east entrance to the policies. Edinglassie was the home of Sir Charles Forbes of Newe and Edinglassie during the opening years of the 19th century.
