    The Nairn's lino works is a very striking stone built works. With most of the factory long since demolished, the looming stone building almost looks out of place rising up from the overgrown field of rubble behind it. It would seem at some point the whole mill has been gutted of it's floors and then been re-built in concrete. This means the windows are not at their correct height with the floor, meaning you can see the new levels through the now broken glass. I'm not sure if the huge long windows were originally one floor, but if they were that mush have been one hell of a room!

    Inside the building was in an advanced state of dereliction, but once again the detail and history was there if one took the time to look.

    From what I have read the building's future is the same old story once again. Granted listed status in the 1990's, sat there for 10 years and now the council want to de-list and demolish. I'm shocked by this, as Nairns was a world famous company, and a huge part of Kircaldy's history, but also because the well proportioned building would make cracking flats, whit amazing views over the town and dock...

    Some history...
