Formerly RW McDonald's Clashmarket, originally Migvie School located on the main crossroads at Migvie. A rare 18th century survivor for this size of building as the majority of the smaller building stock in the parish dates from the late to mid 19th century. The interior is also of particular interest as it currently still retains, the only recently disused, 1950s grocer's shop fittings.
