Southeast (entrance) elevation: recessed entrance porch with corner column to right. Seven-pane window in porch recess. Narrow four-pane rectangular window in centre of elevation and 16-pane window to left. Two attic dormers with thatched hoods.
Northeast elevation: door and single window to right. Single window in attic with projecting curved architrave.
Northwest (rear) elevation: wing extends at right; asymmetrical blind gable. Very steep skew with chimneystack at left and shorter one to right.
This is a very quirky design: the white modernity of the main building contrasts sharply with the vernacular roof.
It is among a relatively small number of buildings with a surviving thatched roof found across Scotland. A Survey of Thatched Buildings in Scotland, published in 2016 by the Society for the Protection of Ancient Buildings (SPAB), found there were only around 200 buildings with thatched roofs remaining.
Listed building record revised in 2019 as part of the Thatched Buildings Listing Review 2017-19.
