Statement of Interest

NOTES: Although altered the cottage retains some original features being an example of the smaller, older houses found in the area. It is possible that the section over the pend was added when No 38 to the SE was built in the 19th century. The pronounced curb stone running along the principal elevation protected the walls of the house from passing traffic, Aberdour was renowned in the 18th and 19th century as having poor roads.
