Appraisal

This house forms part of an interesting group with the related lighthouses in the area. It also forms part of a broader group with the sea safety structures in the area, such as the beacons and former lifeboat house. The house retains many interesting features, such as the patterned slate roof and cast-iron piers and gates. Foundry mark reads: 'J. Robertson & Co. Glasgow'.
