    "1868-70 by John Johnstone. Ashlar, Welsh slate roof. Substantial composition in neo-Romanesque style with errant details. Two storeys, two, three and two bays. Central block taller and projecting, with bays framed in pilasters supporting heavy entablature with ornamental frieze and modillion cornice. Balustraded balcony over has corner pedestals with urns....South return shows long rear part of rubble with round first floor windows in raised surrounds.
