Rear wing: 4 irregular bays long. Stugged stone forestair at centre with doorway under and leading to gabled hayloft dormer; further hayloft dormer over doorway to left; doorway to right by cottage block and
large machinery/carriage doors to outer left. Brick wallhead
stack. Small-pane glazing pattern in sash and case windows of

Named "The Cross" because of its position by the Pencaitland Mercat Cross. Prominently sited at junction, in the heart of Wester Pencaitland. Rear outbuilding possibly served as stable range; the piend-roofed bay formerly extended further E.
