The Scottish Coal Industry

Scottish Coal Industry, The


Mining expert Guthrie Hutton is the author of this compact overview of the Scottish coal industry in our old towns/industries format. Besides the well-known and remembered Lanarkshire, Fife, Lothian, Central and Ayrshire coalfields, the black stuff was got out of the ground at various minor 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 better-known ones such as Barony, Killoch, Highouse, Minnivey, Coalburn, Farme, Bedlay, Banknock, Millhall, Kinneil, Kelty, Glencraig, Bowhill, Rothes and Arniston. The book also deals with aspects of mining life such as disasters, housing, pipe bands, miners' welfare homes and strikes.
