Dunfermline is Scotland’s historic capital with a population in excess
of 50,000. The town is strategically located less than 20 miles north
of Edinburgh’s city centre and benefits from excellent transport links
to the city’s capital. Within walking distance of the subject site is the
towns principal bus station on Queen Anne’s Street. The town further
benefits form two train stations, Dunfermline Town and Dunfermline
Queen Margaret whilst the M90 motorway connects the town to the
north and south which can be joined at both junctions 2 & 3.
St Margaret Works is located on a prominent corner site bounded
by Pilmuir Street to the east, Foundry Street to the south and David
Henderson Court to the west. The site is an established town centre
location approximately 0.5 miles north of Dunfermline’s High Street/

The principle building which was built in 1900 fronts Foundary Street
& David Henderson Court and comprises an L-shaped 2 storey
traditional stone constructed B listed former damask linen mill held
under a pitched and slated roof. To the south west corner fronting
David Henderson Court is a low balustrade tower with access road.
Connected to the main mill building are a series of single storey
factory extensions built in 1937. We understand the factories are
exempt from the Historic Scotland’s listing and may suit demolition.
The site extends to approximately 0.8 hectares/2 acre site or thereby.
Access to the site is from directly off Pilmuir Street with adequate onsite parking provided to the east and north elevations.
We anticipate the original L-plan mill building will suit a variety of
alternative uses readily converting to residential or commercial. The
balance of the site would suit new built residential development/
carehome/retirement living or a variety of commercial/leisure uses,
