Thank you to GM Rigg who wrote:

Drambuie Bond

"I spent about 5 years working at the old Drambuie bond at the foot of Easter Road.  It's gone now but it was located just a little bit up hill from the Persevere Pub on the same side of the road."

Buttercup Dairy

"The manager (Mr Mees) had his office in the old building that at the front of the bond that had been the office for the Buttercup Dairy Company.  The company name was carved over the teller's barred cubical.

and should have been preserved. Some of the older people who worked at the bond and had lived in the area all their lives told me that when they were kids, the school grounds all the way from the bond up to Hawkhill were where the dairy cattle were grazed.

I don't know whether they were pulling my leg about the fields or not."
