Description

Later to late 18th century; rear range probably early 19th century. 2 storey, 3-bay terraced former flatted dwelling; later shopfront to R with enlarged window and door. Painted whinstone rubble; painted droved sandstone tabs; raised and painted base course, window margins and eaves course.

S (REAR) ELEVATION: 2-storey sandstone rubble range to rear at right angles; droved ashlar margins. Adjoining 2-storey rubble outbuilding (possibly former stable, now roofless), probably late 18th century; remains of doocot in gable.

Timber sash and case 4-pane windows to 1st floor (astragals knocked out); 1 remaining 12-pane sash and case window to ground L; later glazing and doors. Concrete(?) tiled roof replacing traditional slates.

INTERIOR: now open plan to ground with central passage to rear. 1st floor with large bed recess (for 2 beds) in room to front L.

Statement of Special Interest

Originally a central close would have provided access to a ground floor flat on either side and through to the rear courtyard and outbuilding. This may have served as a stable, with living accommodation above, as horses could feasibly have been lead through the passageway. On the first floor, one dwelling consisted of a principal room, two windows wide, with a large bed recess on the back (windowless) wall, and a second smaller room to the right. The range to the rear served as a cobbler's shop at one time and is likely to have been a later addition, as it is not constructed from the same whinstone rubble as the rest of the building. The outbuilding later served as a scout hall.

The building is unlikely to have been painted and would originally have resembled No 37 (separately listed) with its exposed whinstone rubble and droved sandstone tabs. Built around 1805, the single dwelling at No 37 has a higher wallhead indicating it is later in date than its neighbour; No 37 is also more refined in its internal arrangement and decoration.

About Listed Buildings

Historic Environment Scotland is responsible for designating sites and places at the national level. These designations are Scheduled monuments, Listed buildings, Inventory of gardens and designed landscapes and Inventory of historic battlefields.

We make recommendations to the Scottish Government about historic marine protected areas, and the Scottish Ministers decide whether to designate.

Listing is the process that identifies, designates and provides statutory protection for buildings of special architectural or historic interest as set out in the Planning (Listed Buildings and Conservation Areas) (Scotland) Act 1997.

We list buildings which are found to be of special architectural or historic interest using the selection guidance published in Designation Policy and Selection Guidance (2019)

Listed building records provide an indication of the special architectural or historic interest of the listed building which has been identified by its statutory address. The description and additional information provided are supplementary and have no legal weight.

These records are not definitive historical accounts or a complete description of the building(s). If part of a building is not described it does not mean it is not listed. The format of the listed building record has changed over time. Earlier records may be brief and some information will not have been recorded.

The legal part of the listing is the address/name of site which is known as the statutory address. Other than the name or address of a listed building, further details are provided for information purposes only. Historic Environment Scotland does not accept any liability for any loss or damage suffered as a consequence of inaccuracies in the information provided. Addresses and building names may have changed since the date of listing. Even if a number or name is missing from a listing address it will still be listed. Listing covers both the exterior and the interior and any object or structure fixed to the building. Listing also applies to buildings or structures not physically attached but which are part of the curtilage (or land) of the listed building as long as they were erected before 1 July 1948.

While Historic Environment Scotland is responsible for designating listed buildings, the planning authority is responsible for determining what is covered by the listing, including what is listed through curtilage. However, for listed buildings designated or for listings amended from 1 October 2015, legal exclusions to the listing may apply.

If part of a building is not listed, it will say that it is excluded in the statutory address and in the statement of special interest in the listed building record. The statement will use the word 'excluding' and quote the relevant section of the 1997 Act. Some earlier listed building records may use the word 'excluding', but if the Act is not quoted, the record has not been revised to reflect subsequent legislation.

Listed building consent is required for changes to a listed building which affect its character as a building of special architectural or historic interest. The relevant planning authority is the point of contact for applications for listed building consent.
