Freeway and Dumbuckhill Quarry
Freeway and Dumbuckhill Quarry
The massive quarry near Milton has now got a new neighbour. The Freeway is a dredger presumably carrying mud etc from Glasgow down to a dumping ground off the Holy Loch.

The row of buildings is a bonded warehouse.
Dumbuck Quarry :: NS4274

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.
