Statement of Interest

Over main entrance lintel are inscribed initials ID ED for residents as yet unidentified.

Entry to 2 Waterpath is through pend arch also serving 3 Waterpath. Paved (stone slabs) and cobbled courtyard (partially divided) shared by these houses and also by 4 Waterpath and 11 High Shore. See also notes for 11 High Shore. The kitchen, with its segmental-headed hearth, deep ingleneuk, large flue and chimney stack, still serves its original role. There are other large segmental-headed hearths in Banff but in rooms no longer used as kitchens. The large panels in the panelled

parlour are typical of their period; the sandstone chimneypiece is

of a type found elsewhere in 18th century houses in Banffshire and W Aberdeenshire.
