Stepped-down and adjoining the house to the L a late C18/C19 2-bay cart-shed with large plain opening to gable; timber lintel. Adjoining the house to the R and continuously-roofed with it, a rubble byre addition, probably C18; corrugated iron roof over original 3-bay pegged collar trusses. Loading bay to the R gable end; 2 stable doors to rear with exposed timber lintels. Adjoining the rear of the house and forming the lower arm of a T, a further byre addition, probably late C18. Rubble as before with old slate roof. Entrances with boarded doors to both house and byre sides, that to the latter with C19 stopped-chamfered doorcase; 2-pane window (with ventilation slats beneath) to R. Adjoining the gable end of this byre section a later corrugated iron and rubble extension.


This was not accessible at the time of inspection (January 1995), though is known to retain a beamed ceiling and fireplace with chamfered bressummer to the former hall and is also said to have a stone newel stair next to the fireplace.
