Could this be Cattie, Whitehouse on Harthill Estate.

Thanks Derek. Yes, that is a distinct possibility and I do see the resemblance in layout and form. Strangely enough I had thought it might have been another steading not far from Cattie. I have spoken to Malcolm Forbes concerning old photographs of the farm buildings on the Forbes Estate, but he thought that there were non in existence amongst their papers. I will keep looking however.
