Full Description

NH89NW 18 8019 9566.

Probably 18th century. There certainly was a building here in 1811, and it was likely preceded by other buildings used for the same purpose. Here was stored grain received as rental by the Sutherland Estate. The handsome two storey corbie stepped building is in excellent condition, and it is let by the Estate to summer visitors.
