Archaeology Notes

NT27NE 93 2711 7644

The four-storeyed tenement at the S corner of Broad Wynd and Water Street dates from the late 17th century but seems to have been partly rebuilt at a considerably later period. The entrance to the upper floors has a moulded architrave. On the lintel can be traced the last vestiges of an inscription in raised letter, too badly decayed to be deciphered. Near the wall-head are inserted the apices of five 17th-century dormer pediments.

RCAHMS 1951.
