Kinlochleven Aluminium Smelter

The aluminium smelter at Kinlochleven viewed from the south east in 1995. The pipes to the right run uphill and east to the Blackwater Reservoir. During construction a temporary railway was built between the works and reservoir - with two rope worked inclines. The longer term tramway between the works and pier was at the far end of the building seen here - the north side of the works. The tramway closed around 1960 and works closed in 2000.
