Cullen Town Hall and Seafield Arms Hotel
Cullen Town Hall and Seafield Arms Hotel
The building is very unusual in combining the main civic building with a coaching inn, arising from the development of the new town as a complete planned entity.

Built 1822-3 to the design of William Robertson, the original building was symmetrical, consistent of the 5 bays either side of the bowed central section. The additional 4 bays at the left hand end were added in 1899-1900 by John Fowlie, architect to the Seafield Estate. Many of the interior features had to be rebuilt in 1951-53 following a fire.

Both Town Hall and Hotel have preserved their original functions, the former including an information office in the left hand wing. Listed Category B, LinkExternal link.
