No Contributor Year: 201046 Corriemore or Balloch Quarry
If you follow the road from the head of Glenbuchat round to Glen Nochty you will pass the ruin of the Balloch School. Just after that on the left is a old slate quarry and a track up the hill. If you take that track and just after it turns sharply to the left you explore the trees up the hill you will come across the remains of the Balloch or Corriemore Quarry.
The hand excavated rock face is still visible amongst the Forestry Commission plantation. The seams of lime stone are still visible on the rock faces.
See map of area in 1850
