Scope and Content Aitken's Brewery, Hope Street, Falkirk, Stirlingshire (Falkirk council area) This was a late 19th century rebuilding of an earlier brewery belonging to the firm of James Aitken. It was built of terra-cotta brick, and its style of construction suggests that it may well have been designed by an English designer. This view shows the brewery from the south west. The section to the right appears to be the malt deposit., with the brewhouse on the angle. Beyond the chimney is what appears to be the tun room, with the wort coolers on the top floor. This brewery was taken over by United Breweries in 1960 and closed. It was used as a distribution depot in 1966, and was subsequently demolished. It had no maltings, the company's maltings were in Linlithgow. Source: RCAHMS contribution to SCRAN.
