Description: Shierglas Quarry, 1 mile south-east of Blair Atholl and 2 miles west-north-west of Killiecrankie Station. Perthshire. General view of plant at new quarry in limestone belonging to Dark Group of Blair Atholl Series, (Dalradian, Precambrian). The quarried rock passed through a primary crusher near the quarry before being transported down the hillside by means of the conveyor to the main plant near Shierglas Farm. Here it is dealt with in two further crushers; part of the product is conveyed to two large storage bins. The bins deliver various grades of chippings for roadstone and part is further processed to ground limestone for agricultural purposes.
