Late 18th century onwards, part of the planned fishing village of lochbay which begun building from 1976 for the british fisheries society. Long 2-storey row of houses, skewed on plan, with continous eaves level except at left hand side (west) where "captains house" is more substantial- being taller, wider, deeper on plan and with full attic storey-and so likely to be closer to the mid 19th century in date (it is said to have formerly had 4 bays, plus a shop, and to have been rebuilt in 1955 after the left hand gable collapsed); narrow 2-bay house adjoining has no 1st floor windows, though it maintains the principal eaves level; house beyond, with large windows and box dormer, is included only for its group value. These three houses are harled and have the most alterations of recent date. Remaining houses have dormered 1st floor windows breaking through eaves, except for "Henderson House" which is listed separately. House at east end has substantial gabled porch, plus a lean-to on east flank. All rubble-built, whitewashed or painted, rendered at east end; slate roofs, with skews and end stacks. Glazing mostly sashes or otherwise of traditional appearance. Some outshots at rear; rubble-walled gardens.
House known as 'The Store' said to be a comparatively modern infilling of a gap site.
