Robert Burn, 1802. 3-bay, 2-storey house with slightly recessed single storet wings; 1-room deep. Squared cream rubble with grey ashlar dressings and eaves course.

E ELEVATION: stair window at centre; stone mullioned tripartite windows in outer bays at ground and single windows at 1st floor. 3-light flat roofed dormers. 12-pane glazing pattern in sash and case windows. Grey slates to deep pitch; ashlar skews and generous end stacks.
GATES, PIERS AND RETAINING WALLS: simple wrought-iron gates. Squared rubble piers and ashlar coped quadrant walls, leading to further retaining walls.
Former stable offices of manse lie to W along roadside, serving currently as Tithe Byre and Bygone Byre, and are not included in current listings. The Forrest map indicates that there was a manse of some standing, on or near site in 1799. It seems more probable that the present manse dates to the Burn work, possibly incorporating earlier fabric.
