Kingsburgh , later 18th and early 19th centuries. A former laird's house languishing at the end of a rook-haunted avenue, its structure - a charming fusion of the polite and the vernacular - now sagging beneath encroaching root and branch. The original piend-roofed box was built to replace an earlier house, which stood closer to the shore. In the early 19th century it acquired quadrant links to flanking single-storey pavilions and a crowstep-gabled stair block on the front whose details are suggestive of Gillespie Graham. Sheltered walled garden and good U-plan court of contemporary steadings.
