Statement of Interest

The unusual 27 Polmuir Road is a single storey version of Ferryhill House (see separate listing), which survives as one of the oldest and grandest villas in Ferryhill. The unusual name of Polmuir came from the original site of the Duthie Park, which was a marshy piece of land covered in gorse (or whin, hence the nearby "Whinhill Road), it was known as Pulmoor, and the surrounding area has since taken on the name of "Polmuir".
