Ruined farm of Yearning Hall
Ruined farm of Yearning Hall
Yearning Hall was built on a spur between two small tributaries of the Blind Burn. The building measued 15m by 5m and faced south. 'Earning' or 'yerning' is a north country dialect word for rennet, used in cheese-making. The house was occupied by George Lowes, his wife Evelyn, and young daughter in 1940 and probably abandoned shortly after. The single-storey building consisted of just two rooms, a living room on the east side (left) NT8112 : Remains of fire-place at Yearning Hall, and probable byre on the west (right), both with entrances on the south side. The slate roof was still standing in a photo from around 1980 and rendering can be seen on the external walls
