The steading is situated immediately to the East of Kinnell House itself (see separate listing) and is constructed on a U-plan. The steading range contains an unusually large granary building of a type of which only 2 examples are thought to remain in the parish (see parallels with Auchlyne which has the other granary building). Dating from around the early to mid 19th century it retains its architectural character and formed an integral part of the estate.

The piended North West range incorporates 2 single storey and attic cottages with gabled dormers to the right. To the left is a single storey section with an arched opening with a timber boarded 2-leaf door in the South West elevation.

The South East range is a 2-storey steading/stables with hayloft above with regular spaced openings, with some louvred and some timber boarded openings to the hayloft. Its South elevation has a hayloft door with a pair of fine depressed-arched openings below. Attached to the East elevation is a later monopitch corrugated-iron addition.

The South West range is a 2-storey and attic granary with slit windows (many now filled in but still discernible). On its North East elevation is a later flat roof brick addition. Situated immediately to the South West of this range is a single storey building with a gable stack to the South East elevation. It presumably had an agricultural function but may have been later converted to form a chapel with the alteration of a window on the South West from a slit to form a Roman cross which has been outlined in granite. An adjacent door with 4-pane glazing to the upper half provides access to the timber floored interior.


Predominantly white harl with the North West elevation of the North West range rubble stone. Predominantly timber sash and case windows, mostly 2-pane over 2-pane, some with horns to the North West range. Slate roofs.

About Listed Buildings

Historic Environment Scotland is responsible for designating sites and places at the national level. These designations are Scheduled monuments, Listed buildings, Inventory of gardens and designed landscapes and Inventory of historic battlefields.

We make recommendations to the Scottish Government about historic marine protected areas, and the Scottish Ministers decide whether to designate.

Listing is the process that identifies, designates and provides statutory protection for buildings of special architectural or historic interest as set out in the Planning (Listed Buildings and Conservation Areas) (Scotland) Act 1997.

We list buildings which are found to be of special architectural or historic interest using the selection guidance published in Designation Policy and Selection Guidance (2019)

Listed building records provide an indication of the special architectural or historic interest of the listed building which has been identified by its statutory address. The description and additional information provided are supplementary and have no legal weight.

These records are not definitive historical accounts or a complete description of the building(s). If part of a building is not described it does not mean it is not listed. The format of the listed building record has changed over time. Earlier records may be brief and some information will not have been recorded.

The legal part of the listing is the address/name of site which is known as the statutory address. Other than the name or address of a listed building, further details are provided for information purposes only. Historic Environment Scotland does not accept any liability for any loss or damage suffered as a consequence of inaccuracies in the information provided. Addresses and building names may have changed since the date of listing. Even if a number or name is missing from a listing address it will still be listed. Listing covers both the exterior and the interior and any object or structure fixed to the building. Listing also applies to buildings or structures not physically attached but which are part of the curtilage (or land) of the listed building as long as they were erected before 1 July 1948.

While Historic Environment Scotland is responsible for designating listed buildings, the planning authority is responsible for determining what is covered by the listing, including what is listed through curtilage. However, for listed buildings designated or for listings amended from 1 October 2015, legal exclusions to the listing may apply.

If part of a building is not listed, it will say that it is excluded in the statutory address and in the statement of special interest in the listed building record. The statement will use the word 'excluding' and quote the relevant section of the 1997 Act. Some earlier listed building records may use the word 'excluding', but if the Act is not quoted, the record has not been revised to reflect subsequent legislation.

Listed building consent is required for changes to a listed building which affect its character as a building of special architectural or historic interest. The relevant planning authority is the point of contact for applications for listed building consent.
