Statement of Interest

This is a good example of a traditional unpretentious U-plan Ayrshire former farm and stable block. The farm has been converted into 5 separate dwellings but retains it original distinctive U-plan form and has few external extensions or additions. This U-plan form, incorporating a two storey farmhouse centrally within the lower byre ranges, is typical of the area and evolved specifically to suit the requirements of dairy farming. Farms like Fairliecrevoch form a key part of Ayrshire's landscape and are an important record of the area's agricultural history. Many similar farms in this form in Stewarton Parish have now been extended and Fairliecrevoch, although now 5 separate dwellings is one which still retains its original plan form.

There are the remains of a former limekiln in the garden.
