Probably circa 1840, incorporating some earlier walling.

Predominantly squared, droved, coursed sandstone with ashlar dressings. Broad-eaved slated roofs. Stables in long W range, doors recessed within wide rectangular central opening to courtyard, ventilator openings and some stable doors face W. Coach houses in N range behind full-length cast-iron-columned shelter. 2-storey groom's house to S; timber boarded door to W, centrally-placed stack with grouped diamond flues. Courtyard closed at S by low boundary walls with spear-headed, cast-iron railings; square gatepiers with chunky corniced caps; spear-headed cast-iron gates.

KENNELS COTTAGE: single-storey L-plan cottage to SW of stables. Later 19th century wing to rear, mid 20th century brick addition in re-entrant angle. Timber porch with finial and decorative bargeboarding; flanking bipartite windows. Deep bracketed eaves; corniced diamond stacks; graded grey slate.

Statement of Special Interest

A well-detailed group, still in use as a stables (2003). The loose boxes retain their original fittings. The free-standing groom's house is unusual, as in many stable blocks the groom's accommodation is over the stables.

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 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.
