Originally formed part of a complex owned by a wealthy publican who resided in the nearby manager's house - see separate list entry for 'Chirnside, Kirkgate, Brewery House'. According to the STATISTICAL ACCOUNT, this publican succeeded so well in his occupation that he "...erected, at a very considerable expense, large buildings for a brewery and malting, joined with a bakery." This resulted in him selling "...great quantities of ale and wheat bread through the country." With the Old Bakery set to the NE (see separate list entry), and the former publican's house to the SW, Braemar and Kirkhill (set behind) are thought to have been the buildings for brewing and malting. Although the early Ordnance Survey map shows these 2 as having been linked at one time, Kirkhill is now separate.
