Rothesay Lade Park
The 'Water of Rothesay' stream was diverted to form the mill lade. Originally used for corn mills in the i6th Century it was later used for flax in the 17th Century. At the end of the 18th Century the mills in John Street were the first in Scotland to switch to cotton spinning. The mills saw their heyday in the 1880s when there were two spinning and three weaving mills.
