Welcome to Fernbank House"...".....
Built in 1892 Fernbank House is the former Victorian property of James Watson & Company Wine & Spirit merchants who homed their Customs & Excise manager here to keep a close eye on the activities of Parkmore Distillery opposite, now sadly closed since 1931 when it is rumoured that the water source became unsuitable for whisky distilling.
