Part of an A-group with Kinneil House, 2 and 4, 6-8 Duchess Anne Cottages, Kinneil House bridge and Kinneil House walled garden.
An important and intergral part of the Kinneil Estate, this former stable and hayloft is situated a short distance to the E from Kinneil House itself. The Duchess Anne Cottages form a particularly picturesque group and are excellent examples of Scottish vernacular architecture.
Kinneil Museum lies within the amenity zone for the Antonine Wall recommended in D N Skinner The Countryside of the Antonine Wall (1973), and which will form the basis of the buffer zone, yet to be defined, for the proposed Antonine Wall World Heritage Site.
