Name: House at Kilmacolm (Altondyke?)
Town, district or village: Kilmacolm/Kilmalcolm
City or county: Renfrewshire
Country: Scotland
Grid ref:
Notes: There is some confusion in the houses commissioned by Doulton - Altondyke (Houston Road, Kilmacolm), Hazelmere (which may be Doulton's previous house) and Dunottar (which may be Bridge of Weir Road).

It is likely that Doulton was living in a house called Hazelmere in 1901 when he commissioned HKM to build Dunottar, moved in and lived there until about 1919 or so. The house name changed to Altondyke which seems to be the current name.
