2 and 4 Newburgh Road largely retain their historic character as late 18th cottages of traditional build and appearance. They are prominently located on one of the main roads leading into Auchtermuchty from the north. Auchtermuchty expanded during the 18th century when it became a centre for linen manufacture, and again during the mid 19th century. The setting is little altered since the 19th century in terms of street pattern and distribution of 18th–19th century buildings. While single-storey cottages of this period survive in large numbers throughout Scotland, those that are little-altered, and which retain their historic setting may be considered for listing. While No. 2 Newburgh Road no longer has a thatched roof (replaced after 1972), the properties continue to be of special architectural and historic interest as representative examples of their late 18th century date.
Statutory address and listed building record revised 2021. Previously listed as 'Houses ('Bonskeid' and A T Carswell's, Mrs Urquhart, Tenant) Newburgh Road'.
