Situated on a SW facing hill just to the SE of Blairvockie Farm, this rectangular single storey building, of random rubble with red sandstone cills and lintels, is situated in the NE corner of a roughly rectangular walled enclosure. This later 19th century sheep dipping shed is an excellent, little-altered example of its rare type.

The 5-bay W elevation has a timber-boarded door to the 2nd bay from the right; the remainder of bays have timber-louvred windows. The N gable has 2 doorways with modern timber half gates which give access for sheep to timber pens within. The E elevation has 4 bays, 1 of which has a blocked opening, the 3 others having timber-slatted window openings. To the S gable is a single timber-boarded door, approached by a stone flag path. The roof is pitched with graded slates, and there is a coped stone stack to the head of the S gable.

The interior of the shed retains a flagstone floor, a brick dipping channel which has been modernised with concrete parapets, and a dip heating boiler with a large earthenware basin.

The surrounding enclosure is formed of random rubble walling with rough saddleback coping; it is divided by similar walling into 3 section, 1 large area to the W and 2 smaller areas adjacent to the dipping shed.
