Hi, can anyone tell me anything about the Windhouse Coat of Arms which is on the front of the house.

There's a Dolphin and what seems to be a helmet from a suit of armour but actually looks like an eyeless head with a smiling mouth with rows of teeth.

Would this be the 'monster' from one of the ghost stories which was killed by a sailor with an axe/ sword. Any information would be of great interest. Thank you.

The coat of arms is supposed to be that of the Neven's family. There's a bit said about it at Windhouse - Yell. There is also some stuff about the history of it at Old Haa of Reafirth.
