Craigshield (Wark)

Craigshield is an early 19th century farmhouse. Originally it was a house with a stable or byre attached and all under one roof. The byre has now been converted into a house. The buildings may stand on an older site as there is a great deal of substantial old stones in some of the garden walls and there are bastles in neighbouring settlements at Horneystead and Mortley.
