Mid 18th century, perhaps incorporating earlier work. Substantial 3-storey L-plan range with return elevation to Battery Green; 17 bays to Castle Street (some openings blocked) with two tall round-headed keystoned arches with blocked imposts. Harled rubble, ashlar margins. Mainly 4-pane glazing in fixed timber lights in street frontage, varied elsewhere; later shop with enlarged window slapped between round-headed pend archways.
Irregular elevation to Battery Green, probably of different builds. Mainly rubble interior elevations with projecting additions and some alteration. Slate roofs.
Substantial building, probably originally a warehouse, being close to harbour. Cumberland's troops said to have been lodged in premises after the 1745 uprising. Glazed lights and windows probably replaced original shutters.
