Statement of Interest

Rare survival of little-altered traditional single storey cottages in Stonehaven's grid-iron plan New Town. Built as mill workers cottages, Ardley Terrace appears on the 1867 Ordnance Survey Map as five small cottages and is sited close to the separately listed South Church. The Arduthie Street elevation adds a suggestion of more polite architecture somewhat surprising on this otherwise simple vernacular row.
