A rectangular building 13m x 6m, with an extension 6m x 5m is all that survives of the farm of Inchloin.The south gable stands to c. 3m in height.

It is also noted as being in existence in 1706 as Inchloin from Innis Loinn, riverside field of the enclosure (taken from Murray, D.C., TGSI 43, Notes on the Parish of Duthil, pg. 31).

the SW is 13m x 5m internally and the NE one 5.5m x 5m. The walls are of dressed stone, double faced, mortared and generally 0.5-0.6m high x 0.6m thick although the SW gable has its full height of c5m in a precarious state. The walls of the NE compartment are less
