NOTES: Aberdour and surrounding land is divided between the old feudal estates of the Earls of Morton (Easter Aberdour) and the Earls of Moray (Wester Aberdour). Main Street is the main thoroughfare of Easter Aberdour. No 64-66 is important as it is one of a few remaining houses along Main Street with its original low roofline, close to eaves windows and principal elevation following the old street line. The skew to the W indicates the steepness of the former roof pitch. The ground floor is set a couple of feet below pavement level indicating that ground level has probably risen over time.
