Statement of Interest

Hamilton Terrace is a major architectural feature in Lamlash and has survived with a minimum of changes, even to its rear elevation, an important factor in its architectural importance and aesthetic effect. See also 1a-24a Hamilton Terrace below. The Terrace is shown on the 1895 OS map.
