This 18th century building stands detached on three sides with its principal gable end making a significant contribution to the historic streetscape. Back Wynd was a narrow medieval thoroughfare with the wall of St Nicholas Kirk lining the E side. Originally leading down to The Green prior to the construction of Union Street, the wynd consists mostly of late 18th century buildings, of which No 2 and 11a is a relatively unaltered example.
