Site Management (17 November 2011)

Symmetrical 2-storey and attic 3-bay commercial premises with Renaissance details of polished cream ashlar and glazed curtain wall. SW ELEVATION: ground and 1st floor divided by 4 giant chamfered piers on pedestals; base course at ground, moulded fascia between floors, entablature with deep caveto strapworked frieze (centre bay with PORTHOUSE overlaid on strapwork) and solid parapet above; escutcheons on each pier (reading in turn ESTABLISHED ANNO 1866, STRENU ET PROSPERE and ERECTED ANNO 1900) supported on small scrolled consoles flank shop fascia at ground. Bays filled by plate glass windows in timber frames divided vertically into 3; those at ground altered. Attic with 3 identical gableheads with dentilled eaves and zinc coping, divided by inverted scrolled consoles resting on dies of parapet; each gablehead filled by lunette with roll-moulded architrave and keystone. 8-pane timber glazing with casement windows. Rubble stacks with ashlar facings and coping. Grey slates. INTERIOR: unseen 1992 but evidently much altered.

Built for the Co-operative Society at a cost of £2,105. The glazed areas are exceptionally large for the date.

There is a 3-storey warehouse with loading bays to the rear of the building that may once have been a mill; a burn certainly did run through this area of town, and the building was a bakery at one point. (Historic Environment Scotland List Entry)
