Statement of Interest

Formerly listed as 9 Back Causeway (Studio Nine). The forestair is a common feature of Culross burgh. The remains of lower skewputts suggest that the roof pitch has been altered. The NW elevation faces Back Causeway, which follows the line of an earlier street which ran from the Abbey to the Sandhaven. For brief history of Culross Burgh see Culross, The Cross, The Study.
