The Granary Cottage
This small Victorian dairy farm dates back to a time when agriculture was undergoing nationwide changes in order to feed a growing population. A beautifully preserved farm cottage forms the centrepiece among outbuildings, a byre, steading and calf shed. Faldarroch is also now part of the Walkers and Cyclists Welcome Schemes and has a drying room for wet clothes and storage for bikes/outdoor boots and clothing.
In the paddock, beyond the walled garden, there is newly excavated wildlife pond, with a burn tumbling in and out, which you can cross using the two wooden bridges. Planting of this area is a long term project, but water-loving plants and trees are gradually being introduced to populate the banks and brown trout will make an appearance as the vegetation grows up. Local birds, including herons, wagtails and swallows are already making use of the pond. Sit on one of the handy boulders on the banks in summer and watch the dragonflies!
