Liquorstane House is a building in Pleasance, Falkland, on the corner of South Street and the A912. It has been a temperance hotel and a masonic lodge, but from November 2021 it has been in use, following extensive renovation, as the Lomond Pharmacy, replacing the Former Lomond Pharmacy premises in Back Wynd.

In the early 20th century it was referred to as Ness's Termperance Hotel, and the owners, Robert and Catherine Ness, also operated a horse bus and haulage business.

It has given its name to Liquorstane, a modern residential road running south from the A912.

The name "Liquorstane" reflects the Scots "Lickerstane", meaning "a cairn or other stone monument associated with burial[1]
