NK1046 : Howe o' Buchan House, Peterhead

taken 9 years ago, near to Inverugie, Aberdeenshire, Great Britain

Howe o' Buchan House, Peterhead
Howe o' Buchan House, Peterhead
This imposing Category C(s) Listed Building stands beside the roundabout at the Howe o' Buchan on the outskirts of Peterhead. From an inscription above a door NK1046 : Inscription above Howe O' Buchan House, it would appear that this house may date from at least 1711, although RCAHMS's CANMORE website LinkExternal link has it dating from the 1800's. Research would tend to indicate that the land at Howe O' Buchan was purchased by one Thomas Walker, whose family were originally occupied Waulkmill, a small wool mill and croft on the Aberdour shore that had been owned by the family since about 1720. So unless the house was already there when the land was purchased, the date of 1711 would appear incorrect as a date of building.
