Statement of Interest

This small cottage is set slightly below the level of the road, in a prominent position at the junction of Bridge Road, Colinton Road and Woodhall Road. It was the home of Henry MacKenzie (1745-1831), author of "The Man Of Feeling", and is listed because of this connection. The cottage was renovated and extended in 1996 by the architect Ron Galloway. Photos dating from the 1970s show it with plate glass sash and case windows, painted window margins, and render all over.
