A much scaled-down version of the elegant waterfront terrace proposed by Telford, Macleod Terrace, developed piecemeal during the early-mid-19th century, with Gesto Terrace a vestigial second street facing the opposite direction. But the neat terrace of stone and lime houses (now gap-toothed and peppered with dormers) was nonetheless to provide a model for the 'improved' houses that began to replace traditional thatched dwellings all over the island from the later 19th century.
