Statement of Interest

With the warehouses of James Watt Dock, Greenock, Meadowside Granary, Glasgow, and Rennie's infilled West and East Docks, Leith, the only multi-storey dockside warehouse in Scotland. A granary and general warehouse, perhaps only later bonded. The appearance of the E gable suggests that an extension to Camperdown Dock was planned.
