This unaltered farmhouse and its associated steading form a particularly arresting and distinctive group in the landscape. Although built in a simple, traditional style, the farmhouse in particular is set apart from other farms in the area by its large size. It has a carefully proportioned principal elevation with distinctive wide bays, typical of earlier farmhouses of this type. The central part of this steading was used as a yard and the wall (possibly now incomplete) would have been part of the midden.
Tullochmaccarick was once surrounded by other farmhouses in a well-populated glen, but these have now disappeared or been left to fall into disrepair and this farm is a rare surviving building in this area.
