Name and dates

Glengarry Lead Smelter (1768-1870)


This lead smelter was east of Clifton mining village (by Tyndrum). It was abandoned by the time the Callander and Oban Railway reached Tyndrum [1st], but the lead mines survived it for some time afterwards, the Tyndrum Lead Mine to smelter waggonway being adapted to deliver to the Tyndrum station.
