Statement of Interest

NOTES: Although altered greatly the cottage is one of a small number of surviving 18th century single storey cottages in Aberdour. In the 1950s a couple of buildings including a dairy to the immediate NW of the cottage were demolished to create a car park leaving a large open space in the lane. A line of buildings originally ran continuously along the lane from the High Street to where the lane turns sharply to the SW. The lane takes it name from John Livingston who ran the local dairy in the mid 19th century.
