Corncockle Quarry
Corncockle Quarry
Corncockle Quarry was a large and historically important sandstone quarry near Templand in Lochmaben Dumfriesshire, Scotland. Stone from here was used in the late Victorian era to build tenements in Edinburgh and Glasgow, and also to construct New York 'brownstones'. The sandstone dates from the Permian Age and dinosaur footprints were found there in the 19th century.

The red Sandstone has been used in many high profile contracts throughout its History such as the Caledonian Hotel in Edinburgh and more recently Buchanan shopping Centre in Glasgow.
