Photographic Survey (June 1957)

Photographic survey by the Scottish National Buildings Record in June 1957.

Publication Account (1998)

The Ship Inn at East Port figure 23.Q & 24, although much altered in both the nineteenth and twentieth centuries retains some of its original late eighteenth-century character. Built as two dwellings, they were converted into an inn in the mid nineteenth century. The skew putts on the east and west flank walls and the massive rectangular chimneys at the wall head are indications of the original wall-head gable that was removed in the mid nineteenth century.
