7 is on Hourstons in Albert St.
11 is above the arched doorway between the Clydesdale Bank and Lows.
No 10 has deteriorated greatly since it was depicted on page 299 of Kirkwall in the Orkneys which is available online now here .
The online picture is not as clear as in an original copy of the book.

I'll give you a clue for 6. It's on a building that went into the gap left by the demolition of the houses on the south side of Craigie's Close.

6 is also on Sinclair Office Supplies.
