Statement of Interest

B-Group with Culross Park House and Culross Park Lodge and Cottage. The line of the walls are depicted on the 1860 map, however, the gatelodge and piers are not. The E and W entrance gates were probably built at the time of the addition of the E wing to Culross Park House (later 19th century).
