Harled, ashlar dressings and margins. Wide ashlar jambs to centre door below gable framed with simple bracketed bargeboards to resemble pediment; centre apex bellcote (no bell survives). Flanking windows with original timber sash and case margined lying-pane glazing; wide triparties in each return gable with similar glazing pattern. Slate roof with projecting eaves.
Substantial rear 2-storey harled block with slated piended roof:

Former Free Church of Scotland school. The original 1845 building is an unusual survival, the design probably after J C Loudon, ENCYCLOPAEDIA OF VILLA, COTTAGE AND FARM ARCHITECTURE, a handbook of architectural drawings and plans first published in 1833 with many subsequent editions.
