The farmhouse dates back to the late 16th or early 17th century when it was probably a bastle. Although the building is now in ruins, there are still a few original features. These include the east wall which is over one metre thick, the square-headed byre doorway and a possible narrow window known as a loop. The bastle was probably altered and added to in the later 17th century as well as in the 19th century. By then the building had become a rather superior farmhouse in Tudor style. This is a Grade II Listed Building protected by law.
