Former site of Carman House
Former site of Carman House
The old enclosures beside the house and the extensive field system that was associated with the farmstead remain conspicuous on the ground, but the remains of the house itself are slight. The present view is along what would have been the long axis of the building. The tuft of tall vegetation that can be seen not far ahead is within the bounds of the house. A floor slab can be seen in the foreground.

NS3779 : Millburn Muir transmitter is left of centre in the background, and part of NS3778 : Carman Reservoir can be seen on the right.
Carman House

A farmstead with a surrounding field system. See Link (in a Geograph article) for more information. In the early twentieth century the building was called Carman House; only faint traces of it now remain. See Link for an enclosure, just to the north of the ruined buildings, where horses used to be sold. See Link for the more extensive field system associated with the farmstead. See LinkExternal link for an annotated satellite view of the house's former site and its surroundings.
