About this spot
This was where the diatomite extracted from Loch Cuithir Diatomite Mine was dried and shipped. The rusty chimney is on top of the drying kiln behind the main building. The site was used from 1899, and it employed up to 80 people until 1960. The story says that during the Great War, the resident Germans were spies. Almost unbelievable to the community, the area was used as a German base with submarines surfacing in the sea bay!
