(Location cited as NS 442 083). Dalmellington Ironworks, Waterside, opened 1848 by the Dalmellington Iron Co. The much-reduced remains of a typical mid 19th century iron-smelting works. The most notable surviving structure is the Italaianate blowing-engine house (NS40NW 15.01) with round-headed windows, dated 1847 and now part of a brickworks. The single-storey ashlar locomotive repair workshops (NS40NW 15.02), probably contemporary, are still in use. The slag-hill (NS40NW 15.03), though reduced by recent excavation, is still a landmark.
