Probably 18th century. Single storey, 3-bay, rectangular-plan vernacular cottage with evidence of hanging lums. Random rubble, render/harl pointing with some roughly squared large quoins.
S (ENTRANCE) ELEVATION: symmetrical. Timber door to centre bay with small windows to flanking bays, that to right possibly slightly enlarged.
N ELEVATION: small window with large slab cill to centre.
E ELEVATION: largely blank gable with roughly triangular projecting stone off-centre left in gablehead, and small lean-to timber structure to right at ground.
W ELEVATION: blank gable.
Remains of timber sash and case windows. Corrugated-iron roof with metal square-section flues(?) to ridge. Squat ridge stacks.
Both stacks/flues are inset from the outer gables which is indicative of hanging lums. A similar structure in Pitlochry is now an 'A' listed Historic Scotland In-Care building, and has been found to conceal cruck-frames and thatch beneath its corrugated roofing material. See also Torthorwald cruck-framed cottage, Dumfries and Galloway. Orchilmore Farm and the later (replacement?) farmhouse flank the cottage on falling ground.
