All suggestions welcomed.
I am looking to compile a portfolio of images, suitable for incorporation into an AV presentation, illustrating the industrial archeology of Scotland.
I am interested in anything and everything in this subject area - whether it is a ruinous condition or has been restored and preserved.
All suggestions of potential photogenic sites welcomed.

The no.1 for me would be St Peters Seminary Glasgow , on the list of top 100 architectural sites in the world and a catastrophe of industrial and modern design now in a derelict state , not sure this fits your scope but i have many photos of it ..
Both Summerlee in Airdrie and New Lanark both must be worth a look. There's also a coal gas museum in Biggar. Another belter is the Graving Docks on the south side of the River Clyde in Glasgow. They are quite a sight.
My son's a bit of an expert on this topic. I'll consult him and get back later.
Thanks for the suggestions so far. Please keep them coming.

Unfortunately the Birkhill Fireclay Mine is temporarily closed. See: http://www.falkirkcommunitytrust.org/venues/birkhill-fireclay-mine/
I hope it is only temporary, Railcam. It's a location that was very popular with photographers.
I am having difficulty finding out the current situation regarding the mine. A lot of the surface buildings were unsafe and I think some have since been demolished. I am sure this was the original reason for closure. I have no idea when/if it will reopen.
