It was a large coal-gas plant, latterly using vertical retorts. This view shows the works from the north east. showing the vertical-retort plant, apparently re-using part of a large horizontal-retort house. The steel-framed construction, with brick infilling, was typical of late coal-gas plants. This works closed in 1963, and was demolished in 1969. It was one of the largest vertical-retort works in Scotland outside the cities. Source: RCAHMS contribution to SCRAN.
