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.
