Each remaining chamfered face with window, those to N and S with piend-roofed, slate-hung dormers, with timber bipartite windows.
Sash and case windows with thick centre astragal and multi-pane smaller upper sashes. Central square granite stack with cluster of cans. Grey slates and lead flashing.
The 1st edition OS map of 1867 shows an L-plan lodge on the site, presumably the earlier toll house to the Bridge of Dee which was closed to public traffic in 1859. It is possible that the lodge was designed by Sir Robert Rowand Anderson who was then working at Baile-na-Coille; the glazing particularly suggests this. The unusual plan form picks up the traditional detailing of a toll house. The lodge groups well with the bridge.
