Sites and Monument Record: Corbiehall, 101-103 (SMR 312)

Two storey dwelling of random rubble with squared dressings to the quoins and window margins. The roof is covered with modern pantiles. The stone is local sandstone, which is relatively soft and would have been rendered in the past. The original west gable had a window or door void on the ground floor towards the back, which has now been blocked up. The plain skew is relatively modern and the chimney stack has been rebuilt in the 20th century.
The disposition of the fenestration on the south and north facades appears to reflect the original, except that there was a window over the door on the south. All of the present stone margins are replacements, the two ground floor windows on the south facade being the most recent. The east end of the long row of buildings, of which this formed a part, was replaced by a taller two-storey building in the late 19th century. Where is joins on the north facade it did so at a ground floor doorway, and an additional set of quoins was added. Above this the quoins may be original and the new building rests on them. The new building extends further south than the original block and there are no quoins on the south side.
There are indications that the building may have started as a single storey structure.

Late 18th century. 2-storeys, 3 bays. Rubble built with squared dressings. Forestair to upper floor with modern hand rail. Modern glazing. Pantiled roof.
