Crow-step gable
Crow-step gable
The stair to the main house is outside; do you think this was to save space inside?
The crow step gable is a common style in old Scottish buildings. It refers to the stones set like steps at the ends of the roof. This house has been re-roofed with slates and so doesn't have the red pantiles.
It is built with red sandstone. The stones are all different shapes and sizes which suggests that originally they were covered with "harling" or roughcast; mortar and small stones used for weatherproofing.
