Aluminiumville: government, global business and the Scottish Highlands

Andrew Perchard

Research output: Book/ReportBook

Abstract

In 1895, the fledgling British Aluminium Company started work on their first aluminium reduction works at Foyers on the banks of Loch Ness in the Scottish Highlands. By the outbreak of WWI – a conflict that was to change both the perception of the metal and the industry - the company’s two Highland factories produced 12 per cent of the total global production of the metal. This book charts this neglected history of an industry that became inextricably tied to imperial interests and national defence, and its impacts on the nation, and on communities and landscape around its Highland works.
