Alternate window-door-window-door-window ground floor with 4 symmetrical 1st floor windows; 2-pane and modern glazing; extensive tuskers to north gable; corniced end stacks; Caithness slate roof.

The building no longer incorporates a shop, which has now been incorporated to form part of the main house. The shop door has been blocked up. The single storey wing to the rear is a later addition, first depicted on the 2nd edition OS map. The short section immediately abutting the main house now incorporates a modern window and door. The remainder of the single storey wing comprises a separate dwelling 'Westbourne Cottage" which has been subject to extensive alterations. <1>

The building was de-listed by Historic Environment Scotland in 2016. <2>
