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.

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.
