Description

Mid-later 17th century, single-storey and attic rectangular

4-bay house (see NOTES).

OLD HOUSE: later 17th century, remodelled later 19th century; harled rubble, ashlar margins. Irregular fenestration, chamfered window margins; early 19th century tripartite in E gable; 4 later 19th century gabled dormers rise from wallhead; single similar dormer to rear; 4- and 12-pane glazing. 1 end and 1 large ridge stack with shaped copes. Small single storey wings advanced from E and W gables forming shallow U-plan court; formerly linked to later house by later 19th century corridor projecting from central entrance (see NOTES). Gabled and piended slate roofs.

Statement of Special Interest

Old house re-used from 1873, when Alexander Ross, architect, built a new 2/2 and a half storey house, and rear wings to the front (SE) of

the old house, thus creating an enclosed courtyard with the old

house (from the then service block) to the rear (NW). New house also linked to old by a pitched roof corridor link, extending from centre

bay of new house to old entrance bay on SE elevation of old house.

Old house again detached from new, and being restored, 1992 (link demolished to reveal original central doorpiece on SE elevation

of old house, with dated (1663) marriage lintel).

Aberarder was a former Mackintosh property.

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.
