Survival of once common vernacular farm building type, further singled out by retention of fine interior detail. Its non-appearance on the 1st edition OS map of 1864, and absence of roads relating, is surprising, as the form of the cottage would be typical of earlier 19th century equivalents. It is clearly shown on the 2nd edition map. Formerly part of Nether Warburton Farm, the cottage was once home to twelve people. The brick stacks may be original as there was a brickworks at nearby Inverkeilour, and lime was available from Bodden limekiln, also close by.
