Statement of Interest

The distinctive glazing and use of materials are noteworthy. The fireclay dressings are unusual; these and the glazing pattern give a somewhat urban character to the house. The steading is a result of improved farming methods and the field boulders used would have been collected during the preparation and enlarging of the fields. The house is constructed with a mixture of locally quarried stone and split field boulders. The variety of other materials in the outbuildings such as cut red sandstone, grey sandstone, and red and yellow brick indicate economic concerns typical of a rural environment. The facade of the farmhouse, prominently sited facing the main Arran road, with its overhanging eaves and smart details conveys the distinction between the domestic and agricultural buildings.
