The Scottish Coal Industry (Stenlake)

Back Order

Mining expert Guthrie Hutton has produced this compact overview of the Scottish coal industry.

Besides the well-known and remembered Lanarkshire, Fife, Lothian, Central and Ayrshire coalfields, coal was mined at various minor and unlikely locations – Brora in Sutherland, Rowanburn in Dumfriesshire, Dalquharran in the Girvan Valley and the Argyll Colliery at the southern end of the Kintyre Peninsula.

These sites are featured as are many other better-known ones such as Barony, Killoch, Highhouse, Minnivey, Coalburn, Farme, Bedlay, Banknock, Millhall, Kinneil, Kelty, Glencraig, Bowhill, Rothers and Arniston. The book includes photographs of many mining locations, as well as looking at disasters, housing, pipe bands and miner's welfare. 56 pages.
