The former attached steading was demolished in the late 20th century and replaced by housing developments. There has been a building here since at least the mid 17th century, when 'Prymrose' is shown on Blaeu's map. For many years (including during the construction of the present farmhouse) the farm formed part of the Elgin estate.
