Information board reads 'The restoration and repair of Portobello Kilns. This historic bottle kiln is being rebuilt to preserve the legacy of the Scottish pottery industry in Portobello. The two pottery kilns form part of the A W Buchan & Co. pottery - Harbour Road, Portobello. The kilns were constructed in 1906 and 1909, and are now all that remains of the pottery industry in Portobello. The kilns are also the last visible remnants of the pottery industry in Scotland, they are category B-listed buildings, and are on the Schedule of Ancient Monuments'.
