Scope and Content Former Lochhead Cabinet Works, Lochwinnoch, Renfrewshire Lochwinnoch was like the nearby village of Beith, Ayrshire, a centre of the cabinetmaking industry in wet-central Scotland. As in Beith the industry not only served local domestic markets, but also the market for ships' furniture. This view shows the works, with its two-storey workshop ranges and circular-section chimney, after it had stopped making furniture and had become a cooperage for the Scotch Whisky industry. As in Beith, changes in fashion and the decline of the west of Scotland shipbuilding industry resulted in the collapse of furniture-making in Lochwinnoch. Source: RCAHMS contribution to SCRAN.
