Statement of Interest

The barn and cartshed are the most architecturally interesting and best preserved of the earlier farm buildings. There were 2 ranges of farm buildings on the site on the map in the Report on Parliamentary Boundaries of Scotland of 1832; one of these probably included the barn. The farm had been expanded to include the cartshed by the time of the 1859 First Edition Ordnance Survey map and also a farmhouse and a grieve's house and bothies (see separate list descriptions for 38 East High Street and 40 East High Street). The farm ranges were substantially expanded in the early 20th century.
