Formerly listed as Mrs J Leitch. Later 20th century developments include the removal of a front porch; the creation of the 3rd storey from the attic and the insertion of a door and attic window in the W elevation. This is quite a substantial house built closely to what was once a busy harbour. Said to have been a merchant's house, the incoming boats could have been viewed from the windows.
