Nothing is visible of this farmstead, which stood in what is now an arable field on a river terrace of the Allt Mor. As depicted on the 1st edition of the OS 6-inch map (Inverness-shire 1874, sheet XLVIA), the farmstead comprised a roofed range, orientated NNE and SSW, which stood immediately E of a garden. At the W end of the garden there was a second, smaller roofed building. By the end of the 19th century the range had been abandoned and it is shown unroofed on the 2nd edition of the map (1902, sheet XLVIA). By this time the garden appears to have been removed, possibly to make way for the construction of an extension onto the E end of the second building. The W end of this building is depicted on the modern 1:10,000 map (1974), but it was not found in dense undergrowth on the date of visit.
