Description

Mid-later 18th century. Granary with adjoining 2-storey

cottages, forming E range of U-plan steading; much

altered. Random whinstone rubble, mixed ashlar

dressings with broad droving, many stones renewed.

Granary with cart openings, possibly raised in early

19th century to provide loft. Cart-arch to outer left

now covered by modern door. Windows flanking; single bay

to left, 2 bays to right, now blocked. Granary loft

above with 3 small openings now blocked. Change in

masonry at quoins suggests possible raising.

S gable with cart-arch and 2 pitching holes above, now

blocked. Further pitching hole to loft.

At rear, loading doorway raised between floors with

smaller openings flanking, 3 windows to loft, now

blocked.

Lower range adjoining to left with 2 doorways and window

at ground floor, large modern sliding door at rear.

Range continuing to N. with 2 two storey farm cottages,

openings much altered; various glazing. Grey slates to

cartshed and granary and cottages; corrugated iron to

middle range. Straight skews; brick stack to cottages.

Statement of Special Interest

Unusual form for a granary; not multi-arched cartshed

with granary above. Possibly a girnal house for storing

landowner's grain; high doorways suggest grain may have

been stored on the sheaf, although it was more usually

stored on corn ricks out of doors.

About Listed Buildings

Listing is the way that a building or structure of special architectural or historic interest is recognised by law through the Planning (Listed Buildings and Conservation Areas) (Scotland) Act 1997.

We list buildings of special architectural or historic interest using the criteria published in the Historic Environment Scotland Policy Statement.

The statutory listing address is the legal part of the listing. The information in the listed building record gives an indication of the special architectural or historic interest of the listed building(s). It is not a definitive historical account or a complete description of the building(s). The format of the listed building record has changed over time. Earlier records may be brief and some information will not have been recorded.

Listing covers both the exterior and the interior. Listing can cover structures not mentioned which are part of the curtilage of the building, such as boundary walls, gates, gatepiers, ancillary buildings etc. The planning authority is responsible for advising on what is covered by the listing including the curtilage of a listed building. For information about curtilage see www.historicenvironment.scot. Since 1 October 2015 we have been able to exclude items from a listing. 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 Historic Environment Scotland Act 2014. 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 current legislation.

If you want to alter, extend or demolish a listed building you need to contact your planning authority to see if you need listed building consent. The planning authority is the main point of contact for all applications for listed building consent.
