designed by John Archibald Campbell and dated to 1888 (Historic Scotland Listing information). The building was built as the Ewing Gilmour Institute for Working Girls. It is shown as the Institute for girls on early Ordnance Survey maps at least until the c.1915 edition, thereafter as the Masonic Hall. The painted hall is by Harrington Mann, one of the Glasgow Boys.

It is now in use as a Masonic temple.
