A well-detailed pair of cottages overlooking The Carron Water which separates the grid iron plan New Town area, designed by Robert Barclay of Ury in 1797 and built on Arduthie Estate lands which had been purchased by his father in 1759, from the earlier harbour area. Deeds show that the land was feued in 1803 with a stipulation that any property should be built to a value of £50. In accordance with this, it may be that a wing to the rear of the current building is, in fact, the original 'but and ben' erected on the site.
