Auchinloch, North Lanarkshire

Auchinloch is a village in North Lanarkshire, near Lenzie in Scotland. The village's name - "Field of the Loch" - derives from its proximity to a small loch called the Gadloch. Industrialization came in the 1880s, with the opening of the Lumloch Colliery, and then in the 1920s Wester Auchengeich Colliery. The latter closed in 1968. Just outside Auchinloch is the Wallace Well, also Cardyke Farm Shelter, a branch of Cats Protection.
