Kirkforthar House is a ruined 18th century house which incorporates earlier work.
Kirkforthar was owned by the Lords Lindsay of the Byres as far back as the mid 15th century, and was once surrounded by a moat, no trace of which now exists.
Essentially all that is now left are the east and west gables which are thought to be part of a 17th century house that was remodelled in the 18th century.
To the west of the house is a 17th century doocot.
While what is left owes much to the styles of the 18th century, the building has a much older history.
