Good example of a vernacular cottage in Pathhead Main Street. Sited on the sloping hill at the bottom of the village, the cottage has many interesting features. The stone star finial is unique within the village. The plaque above the door has worn, the original carving being no longer readable. The gablet skewputts on the porch can also be seen on the modernised cottage to its right.
