B-Group with Culross Park House, Lodge and Boundary Walls. The cottage is closely situated to Park Lodge. It has been converted into extra accommodation for the lodge but the 3 small low openings in the rear elevation suggest that this may once have been used for other purposes such as kennels, a henhouse or the holes may have been for slurry rather than access of animals. This building and the adjacent lodge are not present on the 1860 map and were probably built at the time of the addition of the E wing to Culross Park House.
