STEADING: L-plan steading; further range to E; stepped composition of buildings. Painted rubble. Red sandstone coped skews. Grey slates. Byre to W to L-plan range; barn to E, with threshing machine; formerly with water-wheel in re-entrant angle to SW; segmental-arched opening to E. Range to E, with cartshed to W and stable to E; cartshed with 2 cart bays to N and door to loft in W gablehead.
The farmhouse appears to have been raised from single storey, an alteration probably contemporaneous with the steading. The steading is a traditional post-improvement Wigtownshire steading.
