"The house of Airdrie...dates from 1588. It has, however, undergone considerable alteration, and few features of interest remain. On plan it is an oblong two-storeyed block lying east and west and measuring 78 3/4 by 21 1/2 feet. A wing 12 1/2 ft. square at base, but offset above, projects on the southern side." A little window above an empty panel space on the east side, is set between finials dated 1588 and terminating in human heads. "The masonry is harled, the dressings being exposed. The windows of the main block have been enlarged, and the roof, skews, and chimney-stalks are modern.

John 'de Lummysden' had the barony of Airdrie in 1450. In 1605 Robert Lumsden...sold the lands and barony to William Turnbull of Pittencrieff.
