The plot of land is marked on the late 19th century plan as being owned by John Cromarty, but had yet to be built on at that time. This cottage is a relatively intact survivor of the original simple single storey cottage built along the shore to accomodate the herring industry workers in St Mary's, many of which have been largely altered. Formerly listed as West End, Cottage.
