Details Former manse, still in residential use, built in 1831, probably by Archibald Simpson, incorporating fabric of 1791 and restored in the late 20th century. Historic OS maps show a group of steading buildings to the west, with current OS maps showing an L-plan building as all that remains from the U-plan steading section and the rest of the buildings having been removed. The C-listed former manse is a two-storey and attic, three-bay, rectangular-plan, M-gabled building that is constructed from harled granite with margins. There are 12- and 18-pane glazing patterns used in timber sash and case windows. The graded grey slate roof has coped ashlar stacks with thackstanes and polygonal cans and ashlar-coped skews with block skewputts. There is a simple Tudor frontage that has a round-headed doorway with a decoratively astragalled semicircular fanlight. There is 1791 detail to the rear elevation, incorporating a large centre stair window and bowed single storey flat-roofed projection. It retains much of the original interior detail and is set within garden ground, forming an unaltered group with the nearby Parish Church and graveyard (NJ31SE0047). Early flat-coped, high rubble boundary walls form an enclosed rear garden. The L-plan building to the west was converted into a church hall by Rev John Matthew, minister of Strathdon in 1926-32.
