Statement of Interest

Imposing girnal. The entire parish of Boyndie belonged to

the Earls of Seafield; the storehouse probably used for

storage of goods, particularly grain, for export and

realisation into cash; also for goods imported into

Banffshire by sea, the normal method of transport until

early-mid 19th century.

No 38 Seafield Street, the cottage abutting S NE gable is

not included in listing.
