The RCAHMS (Royal Commission on the Ancient and Historical Monuments of Scotland) record visiting this site in 1993 and reported that "The farmstead comprises a U-plan steading open to the W and a separate farmhouse and a haystore. The farmhouse is located SW of the range and the barn to the S. The site was in a poor condition and used mainly for storage on the date of visit".

It still looked to be in poor condition when I visited in 2012 although there does appear to be an ongoing project to improve the site. LinkExternal link
