Symmetrical 7-bay north front: crenellated 2-storey central tower with blocked pend originally segmental-arched, later square-headed, and now a round- headed window; similar window above (pointed windows to courtyard), and square obelisk finial on square plinth (?formerly housing clock); otherwise square-headed door and window openings below cusped-headed slit loft ventilators; eaves course; cornice. South range also has 2-storey central tower, latter with ball-finialed pyramidal

Statement of Special Interest

Some earlier fabric might be incorporated. A good example of a post-improvement period classical stable block. The 1st edition Ordnance Survey map of 1854-8 mentions a 'Threshing Machine' which was likely to have been contained in the semicircular extension to the South elevation shown on the map and which appears to be no longer extant.

Owned by Forestry Commission Scotland.

About Designations

Listed Buildings

Historic Environment Scotland is responsible for the designation of buildings, monuments, gardens and designed landscapes and historic battlefields. We also advise Scottish Ministers on the designation of historic marine protected areas.

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.
