Dumbreck Colliery, Queenzieburn, Kilsyth.



I believe this is the same Wm Baird company that owned and operated the Craighead pit in Blantyre, Lanarkshire.

That is correct. Bairds were a pig iron and steel manufacturing company based at Gartsherrie, owning their own pits across Lanarkshire and Ayrshire and also into the North of England. They also owned the coke works here at Dumbreck which is the subject of the photo. In 1931 the Ayrshire pits merged with those of the Dalmellington Iron Co. to form Bairds and Dalmellington, 75% controlled by Bairds and with a 70% control of the Ayrshire coal field.



They were later (1939) part of Bairds & Scottish Steel Limited when they merged with the Scottish Iron & Steel Co.
