It's where it should be and quite visible but as others have said, over the years, so much paint has been applied that as a result the details are illegible.

At front end of RHS gable of what is now the Lochan Inn, bar restaurant and B&B, on west side of road. Public pavement-side access. FB heavily overpainted in white to match the building. It is only just readable when the number is already known.
