Site Management (30 October 2008)

Part of a single storey croft in L-plan arrangement including cottage, barn, and kiln attached on axis. Drystone rubble walls with stone slab roof.

This rare survivor of a once common building type, with its particularly fine kiln, is a good example of local building techniques and materials. (Historic Scotland)
