Field Visit (1996 - 1998)

Pier End Cottage is a single storey cottage of 3 bays with a central door faces the road. Whitewashed rubble with end stacks and corrugated iron roof. A small single storey whitewashed rubble byre with a gable end to the road stands to the W. It also has a corrugated iron roof. These roofed buildings are likely to be those marked on the 1837 estate map.

Most of the other buildings along the foreshore W of Pier End Cottage had also been built by 1875 and some had their origins before 1840. Just E of Pier End Cottage is Crofthouse 29. The others spread W from Pier End Cottage as follows:

Wave Crest (?) is also listed and is NG85NW28, Ivy Cottage (6F), Shore Cottage (22), Broom Cottage (21), The Cabin (28), Rocky Bank (9F), sheds (30), Park Cottage (MM 1996 typescript H32), and behind Rocky Bank is Kwato (18F)

Park Cottage MM records as being the shoemaker's shop - a popular meeting place in the old days.

The unnamed sheds (30) immediately W of Rocky Bank MM records as follows:

H31 The old boatbuilder's shed, stone built. A later, corrugated iron, workshop sits beside it and a corrugated iron wood-seasoning shed beside that. The old boatbuilder's shed is still used for village functions.
