Unidentified House & People

Similar to the photo of the 'Straw-back Chair Maker' I also found this photo amongst my father's old photos. I know the faces but can't put names to them. Once again I would estimate it would have been taken between 1967 and 1972.
Can anyone provide positive identification ?

Mucklehouse, Cava? Just a guess. There's no phone or electricity wires, water collected off the roof, tea box of supplies on the barrow, boatman? in wellies at the right. The slope is right too.

I can't be sure but the man on the right looks like Sinclair Laughton, storeman for the North Co. later P & O

Could the one with the cheese-cutter cap be Jimmy Moar from Hoy

I saw this picture today while looking through Roddy Hibbert's albums. The caption said Mucklehouse Cava. And that certainly looks like a young Jimmick Moar.
