This building is a rare survival of an 18th century capstan house. Inside, a capstan, or windlass, which is a type of pulley, was used to pull boats up the steep harbour slopes. The house was made taller in the 19th century, when rooms upstairs were used as net lofts and fishing stores. The building is now an arts and crafts gallery, but the original windlass is still in place. The Round House is made from granite rubble, tarred weather boarding and slate. It is Grade II Star listed.
