This house was probably built in the 17th century. It is like a bastle but has thinner walls and is later in date. (Keys to the Past)

Gatehouse Comments

In what way was 'like a bastle'? Much altered but no real evidence the ground floor was a byre or anything other than residential and, therefore, not like a bastle.
