Notes

The remains of two bastle houses situated in a commanding position overlooking the Tarset Valley. The bastle house to the north of the road is dated to the late 16th or early 17th century and is constructed from random rubble with a Welsh slate roof. The bastle was re-roofed in the 19th century. The second bastle to the south of the road is also dated to the late 16th or early 17th century and now stands roofless. Its walls, however, still stand to full height and are constructed from random rubble. The remains of a possible third bastle lie beneath the 19th century farmhouse of Gatehouse Farm, which stands on a plinth of large boulders.
