Barn to the south-west ofLlower Bonehill farmhouse was originally a larger tenement. The eastern end of of this original fourth Bonehill tenement no longer survives but in 1843 the building was much longer than shown by ther 19th century Tithe Map. There is a blocked doorway in the eastern gable and an orthostat on the outside may represent remains from an open-hearth fireplace. A blocked door in the south wall suggests there had been a central passage. The byre which survives is now floored with granite slabs moved from the main farmhouse. Other details: Figure 35.
