Sparrowmuir, although with later changes, is a worthy survivor of the formerly prolific claywall cottages of Errol Parish. The OSA notes that "Excepting gentlemens seats, all the old buildings in the parish are of this substance, which, when properly cemented, is reckoned the warmest and most durable of any".
