Livestock shed located just outside the gated main yard. Of late 19th, early 20th century date. Largely stone built with a pitched roof of corrugated metal sheet. Divided into animal pens and stalls. Hayloft above. Evidence suggests that the building was originally single storey with a hipped roof which was later raised and converted to a pitched roof. This allowed the insertion of a hay loft on the south side. Pair of modern lean-to sheds at western end. See report for full details.
