Scope and Content Craigmillar Maltings, Peffer Place, Edinburgh The area to the south of Duddingston village was developed for brewing in the late 19th century, after the opening of the Edinburgh, Suburban & Southside Junction Railway in 1884. Six large breweries were built, along with this large maltings. This shows part of the maltings from the south, with the more recent of the two double-vented malt-drying kilns. The complex was built by William McEwan & Co Ltd. In the foreground are newly-repaired beer casks, a rare sight by the late1960s. The older floor malting ranges were out of use in 1967, and had been demolished by 1971, but the newer mechanised maltings lasted into the mid-1970s. The complex supplied malt to the company's Fountainbridge Brewery. Source: RCAHMS contribution to SCRAN.
