Fraserburgh: Domestic architecture

In the latter half of the 19th and the 20th century up to the Great War, Fraserburgh was a prosperous town, its prosperity being reflected in the quality of its public and domestic architecture. Granite was the favoured building material for even the humblest cottages, and the stylistic confidence of the local builders, reviving Scots baronial features, produced a range of excellent villas which are unique to Fraserburgh.
