Dyers Hall Lane
This row of cottages was situated near the Hardgate at Willowbank Road just south of Union Street and probably dated prior to 1789. The name derives from the days when the old Dyers' Association met there. The houses were roofed with red pantiles which were replaced with asbestos when the roofs began to leak. They had outside stairs to the upper floors and water taps outside the door. The Town Council felt that it would be too costly to preserve the cottages for their historic interest, although they were among the few remaining examples of 18th century houses in the city. They were demolished in 1956 to make way for extensions to the Station Garage. The tall chimney probably belonged to the nearby Union Glen Distillery.
