Statement of Interest

Adylinn (not so-named in Valuation Rolls until mid 1920s) was built for the Adamson family, thought to be proprietors of a jam factory (since demolished) situated between High Street and Ericht Lane. However, the Valuation Roll entry records the proprietor as Margaret Adamson, wife of David Adamson ironmonger. The house remained in the Adamsons ownership until 1973. The stair window was re-leaded circa 1990 by Christian Shaw of Edinburgh.
