The Parsonage is a wonderful period mansion house dating from 1863, and was originally built as the parsonage for the Dunmore estate. The house has a very traditional Scottish appearance with impressive façades to the north and the south, and is built of stone under steep pitched roofs with large bay windows on the ground floor and pitched dormer windows on the first floor.
Main accommodation is reached off a central hallway and includes a drawing room, a dining room, two sitting rooms and an informal dining room. An inner corridor leads to a flower room and a study, and continues to the large kitchen/breakfast room beyond, which has French doors out to the garden.
The house has two staircases leading to the first floor accommodation including the master bedroom suite and seven further bedrooms plus three further bathrooms, two of which are en-suite.
