The grounds are predominately laid to grass and rising to the north of the cottage, bordered at the rear by the former Lochearnhead, St. Fillans and Comrie railway line, in use from 1901-1951.

Adjoining the cottage is a store to the rear and on the east gable is a timber lean-to ‘bothy’, added by the workers who built the railway.
