Description

Late 17th-early 18th century, rectangular cruck barn; low/walls

of harl pointed rubble; long 3-bay elevations to SE/NW.

Entrances in outer bays of NW elevation matched by similar in

SW, where that to west is enlarged and flanked by small slit

vent (left) and centre window (right). Later entrance slapped

in SW gable; under corrugated iron gablet; piended corrugated

iron roof.

Interior; 5 pairs cruck blades spring from base or wall,

linked at places by curved "yoke" collar ties; hip cruck

survives at NE gable end (that to SW removed to make room for

present entrance). Some spur ties survive (formerly linking

crucks with wall plate).

Light modern timber rafters support present corrugated iron

roof.

Statement of Special Interest

Unusual survival of finest cruck building in Scotland (see

G Hay).

Precise dating difficult. Pro-originally had turf walls and

served as dwelling possibly becoming a barn after present

"Old Corrimony" built in 1740.

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.
