Remains of a farmstead :: Shared Description

This farmstead was evidently abandoned before the middle of the eighteenth century; it is possibly the "H Killpatrick" (High Kilpatrick) that is marked on John Ainslie's 1821 map of southern Scotland. The farm building survives only as faint ruins, on high ground between the Overtoun and Garshake Burns; the building is at one corner of an enclosure that extends from there to the south and east.
