Statement of Interest

Good terrace of cottages, similar to those in Victoria Street (see separate listings, Harlaw Ward), and typical of Aberdeen. Slightly marred by the later rectangular dormer additions. The sandstone dressings are quite unusual for Aberdeen, where the majority of buildings are granite throughout.
