Full Description

An L-shaped complex is depicted on the 1st edition Ordnance Survey map c.1872. <1>

The building has been significantly altered in the latter part of the 20th century. The current outbuilding was originally part of the southern arm of the "L", which would have been an attached byre. This has now been separated from the crofthouse and a new wing added to the north of the house fronting the road. Photographs of the buildings were taken in connection with a planning application for extensions and alterations. <2>
