Statement of Interest

Formerly listed as 26 and 28 Ann Street, since combined and heavily repaired. At least part of Johnston Lodge was built as coach house and stables for nearby Arduthie House. Documents 'Raised by John Innes of Cowie for Robert Barclay Allardyce' dated 8 and 15 December, 1803 record land feued for '4 dwellings' in favour of Helen Young. These can be identified as Arduthie House, coach house, stables and further dwelling to rear. Although no record of the original structures on this site is available, it is possible that it was raised from a single storey building as there is an obvious change in stonework between floors on the principal elevation. The original listing describes the doorpiece 'incorporating pulvinated frieze to entablature'.
