INTERIOR: not seen 1999.
Set to the E of and still associated with Broadmeadows House (1999). An impressive range, particularly notable for its large, arched entrance and later dovecot addition. The gabled form of the dovecot is out-of-character with the earlier classical range but adds a traditional Scottish note. Forms 1 side of a near 4-sided courtyard - the N range of which has been converted into holiday accommodation. The 1862 OS map shows the W and N ranges forming an L-plan prior to the erection of the later ranges to the S and E.
