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.
