A parliamentary order for a wooden pier at Lamlash was obtained in 1883, the pier presumably having been built by 1885; it was closed in 1954 and subsequently demolished. The pier house has been convereted to domestic use and unfortunately largely repointed with cementitious mortar (1993). See also Sea Gate, listed below.
