A rare early survivor of the once-separate village of Bridgeness and a good example of traditional 18th century Scottish architecture. It is likely that Bridgness pier was constructed in the 18th century and Bridgeness Cottage may have had a seafaring connection. It lies in close proximity to Grange House (now a nursing home) to the E, one-time home of the Cadell family. Early maps show the cottage with a now-demolished addition to the W in the 1850s and with that addition removed in the 1890s but replaced with a considerable addition to the S elevation, again now demolished.
