Garden and Grounds
Edward Road is a side street off Tytler Street. It is a dead-end with only a handful of substantial, traditional sandstone houses. The only traffic is vehicles going to these houses. Assynt has a private front garden enclosed by a lovely low stone wall. There is a path with a wooden fence and gate that leads to the rear of the house. A small wooden shed and a further larger shed are for the exclusive use of the occupiers of Assynt. There is a rotary drier for use by both flats. Tap for outdoor water.
