Cartside Mill
Cartside Mill
The building shown here is part of Smith and McLaurin's Paper Mill, but the site, which is called Cartside Mill, was originally a cotton mill. A nucleus of old buildings remains, surrounded by modern ones.

The site is located between Kilbarchan Road, from which the photograph was taken, and the Black Cart Water; the mill makes use of a lade from that river. There is a link in the end-note to a page with more photographs of the mill; the building shown in my photograph appears in one of them.
