Statement of Interest

The 1860 map shows a building attached to the W elevation. The road which runs behind the Town-House and in front of Myrtle Bank is probably the route of one of the original roads of medieval Culross as the Firth of Forth came up to the Sandhaven area prior to reclamation in the late 19th century. For brief history of Culross Burgh see Culross, The Cross, The Study.
