Appletree Cottage has been up and running for over a year now having opened in August 2016. Work began in late 2015 on the foundations, but well before that, before we bought the farm, the old barn still shown on Google Street View was demolished, probably between 2011 and 2013.
The barn on the immediate left had lost its roof by the time we arrived and we replaced it with a red corrugated iron roof (similar to many other barns on this same road) in 2015.
Other changes have been landscaping, the shortening of the distant barn (so the cottage now gets a fantastic view across Cameron Muir) and the replacement of the double gates which someone appeared to have tried to drive through without opening them!
Below are you can compare the current view with that of 2011.
