Original date unknown. Parker and Forsyth’s 1905 upgrades were a new kitchen and scullery with extract flue (Walker 2015: 73).

When John Rennie inspected the building in 1977 it was still known as the Mountain View Hotel (Rennie 1978:247). It currently (2022) houses a pub The Dubliner downstairs, and Kennedy's Cigar Lounge club upstairs.
