The building itself is thought to be of late 18th/early 19th-century construction and had been completely gutted in the 20th century. A full photographic record was made.

Publication Account (1996)

Millhill, as a street, retains an attractive character, reminiscent of its past, with cobbled roadway and a number of houses reflecting their origins in the eighteenth century. No 69 Millhill is one such example. A terraced house of two storeys height, it has been somewhat disfigured by large doors and re-glazing, but is still evocative of its more attractive past. Nos 54, 71, 73, 77 & 95 Mil/hill, for example, were all built in the eighteenth century and, although also having been subject to a greater or lesser degree of 'modernisation', attest to the growing prosperity of the burgh.
