Statement of Interest

One of two extant boundary marker posts of the former Coltness estate. The post has stub ends of the boundary cast-iron railings some of the remains of which are to be found in the nearby bushes. The estate was purchased by the Houldsworth family in 1836 who carried out an extensive programme of building and estate improvement between 1856 and 1870. The estate was sold to Dr. Barnardos in 1952 and demolished in the 1970s.
