Statement of Interest

A Group with 66, 67 High Street, 70 - 73 High Street and Gardyne's Land, and 75, 76 High Street.

This tenement forms part of a very interesting early group which includes the 16th century Gardyne's Land, the oldest known domestic building to survive within the Dundee Burgh. During the early years of the 21st century Nos 68, 69, 70-73 and Gardyne's Land, and 75,76 have been restored and are now (2007) accessed from the Gardyne's Land block. The billiard room had been used as Keiller's staff canteen, and then as a snooker club since the late 1860s.
