(Location cited as NO 137 218). Fishery, Walnut Grove, late 19th to early 20th centuries. Typical of a number of salmon fisheries on the N bank of the Tay, consisting of a single-storey range of stores, mess room and other offices, with an awning on the riverside, and linked to the cart track by a 2ft (0.6m) gauge hand-worked railway. As at Cairnie Pier (NO11NE 76 and NO11NE 109 ) the track is largely laid with bridge rails.

The 1967 edition of the OS 1:2500 map and the 1994 edition of the 1:10,000 map indicate a connecting railway running alongside the river between the fishing stations of Walnut Lodge (NO12SW 343) and Stock Green (NO12SW 259).
