Statement of Interest

This was probably a townhouse that was later converted to shops at ground floor. Montgomery Street is the oldest street in East Kilbridge and remained the heart of the village until the 1950s New Town development. It was originally called the High Street. Its current name commemorates the Montgomerie-Cunninghame family. The status of the street is evident by the older properties: the Parish Kirk, the Courthouse and a large coaching house.
