Gabled timber dormers to S with bargeboards in each bay, bipartite to left, stepped tripartite to right; 2-pane timber sash and case windows, framed by half-round mouldings with architrave-blocks at corners.

NOTES: Main Street is the main thoroughfare of East Aberdour. No 73's quirky classical detail sets it apart from the rest of the street. Its novel style is perhaps a reflection of Aberdour's popularity throughout the 19th century as a seaside resort for tourists and day-trippers.
