Glass Cave
Last century, in 1610, Sir George Hay, established a glassworks in this Cave. This was one of the earliest glassworks in Scotland. In 1898 the Michael Colliery shafts were sunk a little to the east of the Cave. In the course of time the upper seams of coal were worked under the Cave and on an evening in 1901 the Cave collapsed and is now filled in with redd from the colliery.
