Built as A Marshall Mackenzie's own house ? an Edwardian villa of some style by the architect of Marischal College, Aberdeen (see separate listing) with croquet lawns, tennis courts and swimming pool overlooking the Howe of Cromar though all these garden features have been subsumed by modern forestry planting. The house originally featured a flat roof to the central bay which was pitched by Mackenzie's son.
