Dalmuir  Dunbartonshire


In 1882-4, Frances Groome's Ordnance Gazetteer of Scotland described Dalmuir like this:

Dalmuir, a burn and a village in Old Kilpatrick parish, Dumbartonshire. The burn rises among the Kilpatrick Hills in Cochno and other head-streams, collecting which in the north-eastern vicinity of Duntocher it thence runs 2¼ miles south-westward to the Clyde. The village stands on the burn, 3 furlongs above its mouth, and 13/8 mile SE of Kilpatrick village, with a station on the Dumbarton section of the North British, 9¾ miles NW by W of Glasgow, under which it has a post office. ...

Near it are chemical works and the huge Clydebank shipbuilding yard and engineering works, which cover 30 acres, and employ 2000 men.
