Recently-cleared land at Kilmalid
Recently-cleared land at Kilmalid
The land was presumably cleared in connection with expansion taking place at the bottling and blending plant on the other side of the fence. The 1:25000 shows the picture as being taken just within a boundary: not that of the plant, but an embankment between this slightly higher ground and a NS3977 : Marshy area beside the River Leven, behind the photographer's position.

Kilmalid bottling and blending plant
The blending plant built by Hiram Walker (Scotland) at Kilmalid, near Dumbarton, opened in 1977, and was said to be the most advanced in Europe. A few years later, a bottling plant was also built here; it went into operation in August 1982. Later, after various takeovers and mergers, the company operating the site was called Chivas Brothers (part of Pernod Ricard). Towards the end of 2016, Chivas Brothers announced that it was closing its operations at Paisley, but investing in an expansion of the Kilmalid site; jobs from Paisley were to be transferred there. It was intended that the expansion work at Kilmalid be completed in 2019.
