Details Manor house, still in use, built in the 17th century with later alterations and additions, including reconstruction work by A. E. Duguid in 1881 and additions and alterations by George Bennett Mitchell in 1900-1904. It is a two-storey building, extended to the sides in the 19th century and the front in 1900-04. This was the seat of the Farquharsons, who lived there until the 20th century. Dendrochronological dating of the roof timbers was done as part of the SCOT2K project, which give two early phases with the first phase dating to 1748 AD and the second to 1783 AD. The Farquharson family were Jacobites, and the 1748 date suggests it may have been a part of reconstruction that took place in the area following an uprising leading to the the nearby Corgarff Castle (NJ20NE0001) being captured by the Hanoverian army in 1746.
