Grangemouth Refinery

Grangemouth Refinery is a major industrial landmark in the Forth Valley.

It can't be claimed to be pretty with its numerous gas flares and cooling towers dominating the landscape.

 Through the hours of darkness it is very brightly illuminated and can be seen for miles around.

It does however produce and supply refined products to customers in Scotland and other parts of the UK.

It also provides much needed employment in the area, and is I believe the UK's second-oldest refinery.
