Linear plan, original through-passage entry, perhaps a longhouse. 1 storey with attic, 2 storeys to right of door.

Former door, with chamfered surround and flattened triangular head cut in monolithic lintel, blocked and C20 window inserted. One ground floor C20 window and 2 others above. To left, slightly set-back C17 extension with C20 ground floor window. Left return has blocked 1st floor loop and corbel for earlier chimney. Right gable rendered, altered ground floor door. Rear elevation has blocked doorway with window inserted as on front and various blocked openings, including byre ventilation loops to left of door. Interior much altered.
