Details A former manse and associated farm buildings, depicted on the 1st and 2nd edition OS maps and still in use. Both buildings are listed with the former manse being B Listed, and the steading as C Listed. The manse was built by A. and W. Reid in 1853 who also built additions in 1877. It is a 2 storey, asymmetrical 3 bay house that is harled with painted stone margins. There are projecting W bays with a canted window in ground floor from after 1877. There is a square porch at the re-entrant angle and a tripartite in the ground floor E bay. 8-pane glazing is used, and there is a stair window to the rear. There are deep corniced stacks, bracketted eaves and a piended slate roof. The single storey drying room, which is now a garage, was added 1877 at the W. There are further, later alterations to the rear. A pair of square ashlar gatepiers, with moulded pyramidal caps, and quadrants, is also present. The garden wall is a high coped rubble construction. The steading building was also built by A. and W. Reid in 1853. It is a symmetrical U-plan steading and gighouse constructed of rubble with tooled dressings and painted margins. The buildings all survive, but the steading is shown on current maps as largely unroofed. The manse was purchased by the Navy in 1854 (a new manse being founded on James Street) as the residence of the first Naval Captain of Lossiemouth Airfield (NJ26NW0045) after it became a Royal Naval Air Station after WWII. As a result, it is also known as 'The Captain's House'.
