Old cornstone workings :: Shared Description

Cornstone (a kind of limestone) was quarried from various locations on Carman Muir, to be burned for lime, but the industry was centred on this particular knoll: a ruined lime-kiln can be seen on its northern side, and there are extensive spoil mounds and signs of quarrying nearby. See LinkExternal link for an annotated satellite view centred on this area. See LinkExternal link for details of former quarrying on Carman Muir as a whole.
