An early, well-detailed farmhouse, particularly unusual and remarkable for its red brick construction - the majority of farmhouses in Scotland at this date being in stone. The steeply-pitched roof and principal window arrangement suggests an early date. Still associated with the farm steading to the N - itself predominantly rebuilt/replaced later 20th century. Rutherfurd's notes a Mr James Scott as farmer here in 1866.
