A simple, early farmhouse and associated courtyard with the majority of its original features in place. Of particular note are the timber sash and case windows, storm doors, grey slate roofs and corniced stacks. Like Edinbeg and Glenmore (see separate list entries), Kilwhinleck is a good, if modest example of a single storey working Bute farm.
