Brae House and White House date from 1771x78. Facing southwards, looking over West Bay, these two-storeyed houses are harled with slated roofs, although White House now has modern slates. B

ae House has its lintel engraved 'TB 1771', piended dormers and an inscribed door lintel. A three-faced sundial, dating from 1778, would have been a useful timepiece for those making for the ferry boat. These stood on the new route way under construction at this time (seep 46).
