Dumbuck Quarry: detail
See NS4274 : Dumbuck Quarry for a detailed description of the site. The present picture is from the lower slopes of Dumbowie Hill. As was evident by sounds from within, work was once again taking place there, after a couple of years of inactivity.
Dumbuck Quarry

The quarry, which supplies aggregates for the construction industry, is also known as Dumbuckhill Quarry. It has consumed much of Dumbuck Hill, which was a volcanic plug, located at the edge of the Kilpatrick Hills. The quarry was mothballed in 2011, but its new owners resumed operations there just a few years later.
