Accessing Scotland's Past Project

Built in 1825, the former manse of Auchbreck stands at Bridge of Auchbreck. Standing two storeys in height, the manse is relatively plain and has a harled facade, with pink granite used to define the margins or edges of the building. In the late nineteenth century, a bay window was added to the front of the house. At the rear of the building is a two-storeyed wing, built at right angles to the manse.

The manse of Auchbreck had its own steading buildings. These have survived as an L-shaped, rubble-built range which includes a stable, byre and gig house.
