Street with the picturesque fishermen's houses from the middle of 1800's is located along the beach in the old port area of Uthaug.
The families who lived in Sjøgata had mostly their living from the sea, and served potatoes and another on tiny plots. The location was convenient - one had an overview of boat and farm. There were also disadvantages; so near the shore could sea at high tide wash away the soil in front of the living rooms. The special environment under the famous Ørland sky has attracted many artists.
