This farmstead is the southern of two closely-spaced but apparently independent farmsteads situated at the junction of the Leadensider Burn and its tributary the Burn of Sluggie, thje other being NJ31NW 63. Four tightly-spaced roofed buildings, with a limekiln to the E, are depicted on the 1st and 2nd editions of the OS 6-inch map (Aberdeenshire, 1869 and 1903 respectively, sheet l).
The SE building lies immediately to the E of the modern track and was probably a farm cottage. It measures 13.7m from E to W by 5.2m transversely over clay-bonded stone walls 0.75m in thickness and up to 2.1m in height. An entrance central to the S side leads into a garden enclosure. Immediately to the W of the cottage, on the W side of the track, there are the grass-grown remains of a small building which is open-ended to the S and measures 6m from N to S by 5.2m transversely over footings 0.5m in thickness and 0.6m in height. To the N of this structure there are the remains of a barn measuring 16.9m from E to W by 5.5m transversely over grass-grown stone wall-footings up to 0.7m in thickness and up to 0.6m in height. The building contains three compartments with entrances to the S, and there is a 2m wide stony platform running the length of the building on that side. At the W end of the building there is a small outshot, and at the E end of the N side there is a horse-engine platform measuring 9.4m in diameter.
The fourth structure lies on the E side of the track N of the cottage and measures 12.3m from E to W by 5.6m transversely over grass-grown footings.
The limekiln is situated about 50m to the E of the cottage on the S side of the Burn of Sluggie. It has been set into a NW-facing slope and measures 6.5m in diameter overall and 3.2m internally; the draw-hole is situated on the NW.
