SW (PRINCIPAL) ELEVATION: 2-storey bays to left with tall single storey bays to right. Full-height polygonal-roofed canted bay to left of centre with bipartite window at basement and 4-light window to each floor above; rectangular-plan bay to outer left with horizontally-aligned wide-centre tripartite at basement, further wide-centre tripartite to each floor above, that to 1st floor breaking eaves into gablehead.

Statement of Interest

Possibly built as a shooting lodge for William Delisle Powell from 40 Sussex Gardens, London. The present (2001) owner has imported fireplaces to replace those removed during the mid 20th century. A basement room had approximately 100 hooks situated at picture rail height, probably for hanging game. Attributed to John Murray Robertson owing to details in common with other examples of the architect's work, notably The Bughties, Camphill Road, Broughty Ferry, and Knowehead, Ferntower Road, Crieff.
