The ruins of Knocknairshill Farm
The ruins of Knocknairshill Farm
This building, at the western edge of the site, has its long axis oriented NNW—SSE, and stalls spaced at regular intervals along its longer side walls.

The ruin shown in NS3074 : The ruins of Knocknairshill Farm is superficially similar, but it is a different part of the farm. That building is a few metres to the north-east of this one, and it is oriented differently (at right-angles to this one). Also, its outer walls survive to a greater height.
Ruins of Knocknairshill Farm
"A dwelling house and outhouses having a farm of land attached. Occupied by Alex. Scott. The property of Sir Michael Shaw Stewart" – OS Name Books (1857). Roy's Military Survey (1740s-50s) shows "Knocknairshill", other farms in the area ("Bogstoun", "Fifestoun", "Chapletoon", "Gibshill") and the nearby "Devils Glen" (present-day Devol Glen). In the same area, John Ainslie's 1796 map of Renfrew shows the farms "Knocknair", "Gibbshill", "Lurg", and "Chapleton", and "Divels Glen". "Knocknairhill" or "Knocknearshill" is found in a 1716 listing of farms in Easter Greenock.
