Previously listed as J F Wikie after the former occupant (Wilkie). The ground floor ceilings have been raised and later 19th century windows inserted. The NE section of the house may have been a separate cottage with an entrance door in the SE elevation. The SW room may have had a door in the NW elevation opening onto Tanhouse Brae and it seems likely that access was obtained from the street.
