Other than from the air, this is probably the best place from which to get a view of the whole estate. See Link for related images.

In the left-hand half of the image, the arc of housing immediately behind the industrial estate is the Strathleven Housing Estate. Behind that, further up the hill, is the Beechwood and Wheatcroft Estate, extending out like an arm from Braehead and Redburn, part of which can be seen at the far left.

A little right of centre, NS3978 : Strathleven House can be seen standing alone. Two outlying buildings on the right are a NS4077 : Packing company's building (with NS4077 : Murroch Farm visible behind it) and a NS4077 : Timber company's building.
Vale of Leven Industrial Estate

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.
