The house dates from the 16th century and was built as a long-house, aligned down the slope. Its hall was originally open to the roof, and partitioned from the inner room with planks & muntins, chamfered to the hall. The ceiling at the upper end rests on stop-chamfered joists. Below the cross-passage is the byre, with its external door and floor with a paved drain leading out of it. The byre's upper room, reached only by ladder, has a gable-end window. In the late 17th century the hall was floored and stairs built beside the chimney. In the present century most of the doors and windows have been refitted, and the upper storey of the original hall remodelled. Until recently the roof was all stone-covered. It remains comparatively unmodernised.
