3 Great Eastern Road Portessie. This property is set back from the road directly opposite PeterHythe and was apparently once known as McIntosh Close.
This was the home of John McIntosh b1845 and was inherited by his son Duncan b1889. It remained in the family until the death of the last surviving child of John, Christina, in 1972. W.R. McIntosh b1853 owned the property next door known as 2 Great Eastern Rd.
2 & 3 Great Eastern Rd. are just visible at the immediate bottom right of the recent image.
