Statement of Interest

This short terrace of local red sandstone buildings with Burnbrae at its centre is a significant element in the streetscape of this early part of the village of Bridge of Earn. It is a good survival of an early tenement building and it conforms to the Scottish tradition of a central wallhead gable. The building immediately to the north is the separately listed Cyprus Inn; it is similarly styled with its centre bay rising into a wallhead gable. The Inn appears on the 1st edition Ordnance Survey map as a brewery, but as a public house on the 2nd edition. Development in Back Street commenced in 1769 when local joiner and undertaker, John Gilloch, obtained a ninety nine year lease from the Moncreiffe Estate of a strip of land running from Sealsbridge, to the south of Burnbrae, and the River Earn to the east. There are some good rubble boundary walls located at the rear of these properties.
