Vale of Leven Industrial Estate
Ahead, to the left of the road, is a small brick structure with NS3978 : Inscriptions commemorating two Royal Visits. Directly across the road from it is a flagstaff that has been here for decades; it was probably set up when the inscriptions were.

Nearer, on the left, is a sign indicating that the area to the left of the road is part of "Plot 3", acquired by the local council for redevelopment.
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.
