Where did William Lindsay live?

This is Walker Street, Edinburgh, Midlothian. This is where William Lindsay was living and working in at the time of his marriage to Euphemia Robertson on 20 December 1831. She lived across the street (my camera batteries ran out before I could take a photograph.) Both houses are now owned by private companies. Interestingly enough one of the houses on the street was up for sale and I was sorely tempted to talk to the estate agent about having a look inside :)
The street is part of Edinburgh New Town and is not too far from St. Cuthbert's Church where they got married.
1841 - Pitlour, Strathmiglo, Fife
1851 - East Pitlour Farm, Strathmiglo, Fife.
1861 - 3 Anniston Gate, Inverkeillor, Forfar.
1871 - Anniston Gate House, Inverkeillor, Forfar.
1881 - Priestfields, Inverkeillor, Forfar.
I went to Blairgowrie with my brother to try and track down some family information but we could not find the local library let alone any other site I was interested in. This will probably have to be a long distance writing endevour.
Pitlour Farm, Strathmiglo, Fife. I have information about the family that owned Pitlour House i.e. the Skene's. William was the butler to the household.
As for Inverkeillor some kind researchers sent me historical information and I found some maps on-line. Next step - photographs because my understanding is that Anniston Gate and Priestfields still exist.
