Formerly listed as: House (W O'Connor, E MacDonald & P W Hurst) and Butcher's Shop (MacDonald & Reid) The Cross & Tanhouse Brae. The current building replaces an earlier (17th -18th century) house which is depicted in the illustration by Jessie King. It was a 3-storey stone rubble house which faced the Cross, with a central 2-leaf door; possible flanking windows; 2 1st floor windows and 2 narrow 2nd floor windows with a garden wall to the front. Also depicted is an attached building on Tanhouse Brae, with a forestair. The buildings are shown in a dilapidated state. It may be coincidence that the early 20th century butcher's shop was located here, close to the 17th century butcher/tanner's house (4 Tanhouse Brae). The original tiles in the entrance to the butcher's shop are an attractive feature. The butcher's shop closed in 1993 and it became a tea room for a couple of years before being used as an office.
