Statement of Interest

January House faces the Sandhaven, which was a harbour, prior to reclamation in the late 19th century. The survival of so many 17th and 18th century houses in the burgh has meant that January House is one of only a few earlier 19th century buildings in Culross. It was restored internally in 1968.
