1860s powerloom linen factory in the style of Robertson & Orchar of Dundee, a two storey frontage to a weaving shed, with loading doors. The factory was converted to flats in c. 2005. Lumsden was a paternalist provider of housing and Lumsden Memorial Hall is one of the reminders of the importance of the firm to Freuchie.
