Statement of Interest

Although there were buildings at Brochdu at the beginning of the 19th century, by 1848 the site was listed as land only. An 1885 valuation of Brochdu lists 'crofts and a cottage, the buildings slated, part being used as a joiner's shop'. Traditional Aberdeenshire design but particularly fine survival.
