Timber company's building
Timber company's building
The building (see NS4077 : Timber company's building for a better view) is located at the south-eastern extremity of the Vale of Leven Industrial Estate, almost opposite the entrance to the bottling and blending plant at Kilmalid (NS3977 : Vale of Leven industrial estate, Kilmalid). The picture was taken from near NS4077 : The Lion's Gate.

(The company that was using this building when the picture was taken later shut down; a different timber company took over the premises early in 2013: NS4077 : Timber company's building.)
Vale of Leven Industrial Estate :: NS3978

Of the very extensive lands that came to be associated with Strathleven House Link a portion was compulsorily purchased by the Board of Trade in 1947, and was developed by Scottish Industrial Estates Ltd in 1948 to form the Vale of Leven Industrial Estate. At the estate's inception, Westclox Ltd and Burroughs Adding Machines had factories here, but they are now gone. Polaroid, a later arrival, lasted until 2017. The estate is used by a number of smaller businesses, and there are some vehicle depots.
