Statement of Interest

The houses were said to have been split by floors; one flat in upper storey; another in the lower storey. It is now one house. The 2-storey, 3-bay arrangement with upper windows hugging eaves is a typical pattern in many little houses in Culross. The forestair of the adjoining, smaller house is also a common feature in Culross. For brief history of Culross Burgh see Culross, The Cross, The Study.
