The Maltings is part of a late 17th century inn complex, the inn itself (Royal Oak Inn) having been demolished in the 1970s. The Maltings is now an education and exhibition centre, while its associated brewhouse houses an archive of local documents, photographs, ephemera etc. The earliest Mesolithic occupation of Scotland has been identified near the Maltings and the exhibition contains artefacts from then until the present.
