Loch Lomond And Trossachs National Park Planning Authority

Late 18th/early 19th century with alterations; flatted probably later 20th century. 2-storey with later attic; 3-bay; farmhouse with flanking single storey L-shaped farm outbuilding wings (forming overall U-plan); pair of separate 2-storey; square-plan pavilion blocks attached to later farm buildings to N. Symmetrical design with regular fenestration to farmhouse and flanking pavilion-like projeting bays to principal (S) elevation. Harled. Eaves cornice to main complex.

S (PRINCIPAL) ELEVATION: 3-bay farmhouse to centre; central entrance with 20th century part-glazed piended-roofed porch; part-glazed panelled timber door set back. Flanking windows to ground and 1st floors and one above. Pair of inserted late 20th century dormers to roof; inserted skylight in between. 1st floor window to left return. Flanking single storey wings set back slightly ; 2 windows to that to right; one enlarged window (probably formerly 2 windows) to that to left. Slightly projecting outer flanking piended-roofed bays; window to each.

N and COURTYARD ELEVATIONS: pair of single storey wings project forward from either side of house. Altered openings; entrance (with late 20th century part-glazed door) to right and pair of windows to left to each wing. Space in between as entrance into courtyard. 1st floor window set back to centre of house; narrow lean-to to ground floor. Irregular openings to courtyard; both wings return for short distance at right angles on N side, partly enclosing it on this side.

E ELEVATION: pavilion-like bay projects to end of single storey wing to outer left. Long arm of wing set back to right; altered irregular fenestration; later porch to re-entrant.

W ELEVATION: pavilion-like bay projects to end of single storey wing to outer right. Long arm of wing set back to left; altered irregular fenestration.

Both with large inserted entrances to S. Single storey range adjoins W block to N; blocked entrance (formerly to attached range) to N side of E block. Stone steps up to 1st floor entrance to E side of W block; blocked ground floor window to W side. Ground floor opening to W side of E block.

INTERIORS: not inspected (1999).

Statement of Special Interest

A carefully planned early farm steading; it must have originally been quite handsome with its symmetrical principal elevation with its flanking outer pavilion arrangement. It appears as 'Ibert' Farm on the 1865 OS map; which shows a further range of buildings grouped arround a U-shaped courtyard immediately to the N. An almost identical arrangement is to be found today (1999); however, with the exception of the above described pavilion blocks, the buildings appear to have been radically altered/rebuilt and are not included in the listing. It was built as an estate farm on the lands of the Duke of Montrose.

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.
