Statement of Interest

Duncan McMillan (1840-1928), had a successful practice in Aberdeen, which his son, John Ross McMillan took over when he died. McMillan is perhaps best known for his work on Archibald Simpson's Marine Terrace (see separate listing), but was responsible for a variety of simple but unusually detailed buildings like 64 Fonthill Road. Of note also is 2-14 Fonthill Terrace (see separate listing, Gairn Ward), which he designed with his son.
