Description

Probably early 19th century with later additions. Single storey and 2-storey with raised basement, pantiled, rectangular-plan former mill on ground falling steeply to S, and low rectangular-plan range to NE forming L-plan range. Tall piended and pantiled ranges added forming U-plan, and later piended and slated ranges added forming large rectangular-plan block. Mill range of snecked whinstone rubble with contrasting ashlar quoins; random rubble with variety of dressings and brick infills elsewhere. Segmental-headed openings. Relieving arches.

S (KINGHORN LOCH) ELEVATION: dominant projecting mill range to outer left with blinded arch at raised basement and small window close to gablehead; slightly lower range to right with 3 brick arches close to eaves at left.

W (MILL) ELEVATION: 2 openings to each floor in bays to right of centre, mill wheel formerly positioned to left and very low range on higher ground (site of mill race) to outer left.

N ELEVATION: low range with 2 altered openings under raised catslide roof to centre, segmental arch with brick voussoirs on gabled return to right and further gable set-back to outer right with door in altered opening (evidence of relieving arch).

E (FARMYARD) ELEVATION: 5 piended ranges; bays 1, 4 and 5 pantiled, and bays 2 and 3 slated. Variety of elements, openings mostly altered with sliding boarded timber doors.

THE HERMITAGE: small single storey and raised basement, 2-bay, rectangular-plan, corrugated, rubble store on ground falling steeply to S. Segmental-headed, voussoired cart arch to left of S elevation.

ANCILLARY BUILDING: long single storey, rubble range adjacent to loch with corrugated-iron roof and variety of openings.

Statement of Special Interest

Craigencalt appears on the 1st OS Map as 'Craigencat Mill', with only the original L-plan range (see above) marked. Reid notes that the mill buildings were the property of the Philp Educational Trust, and the adjacent farmhouse was also thought to be built by the Trust, presumably at the same time as the slated additions. Of notable interest for its response to a steeply falling site resulting in buildings accessible at 2 levels.

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.
