A fireplace and stair were inserted early C17 when a room was added above the hall. The lower gable end was rebuilt early C18 when the present byre was added. Altered again in 1977 (date on building) when the byre was heightened and a crenellated tower was added.


Built into the bank on a steep site and consisting of a 2-storey house with a former byre at the downhill end, and an embattled tower added at the uphill end. Of random rubble sandstone and concrete pantile roof. The main house has a C17 stone stack at the downhill end and a later stone stack at the uphill end. The windows are lately added casements. In the lower storey are a hall window to centre and former parlour window at a higher level to R. The window to L is lately converted from a doorway. In the upper storey are 3 windows, the window to L a late insertion. The former byre at the downhill end has a wide doorway with a 2-centred head and replaced doors. Above is a gablet added in 1977. In the L gable end are breathers above inserted windows.
