Visit Grangemouth and the surrounding villages and stay in bed & breakfast accommodation:
Grangemouth, Falkirk, on the Firth of Forth, is second only to Glasgow of Scottish seaports in cargo handled.
A flourishing and apparently ever-expanding centre of the oil and plastics industries. Its architectural fabric varies from the aluminium tubular of the refineries and plastic plants on the outskirts to the 19th-century buildings in the heart of the town, and to the landscaped, modern, with-adventure play areas in the new housing developments.
Oil-refining, the key to Grangemouth's growth, was started in 1924 and assumed the proportions of a boom industry after the Second World War. Crude oil comes by overland pipeline from Finnart on the West coast. In addition to fine oils, petrol, paraffin, and liquid gas, the refining process produces the basic stock needed for the manufacture of chemical intermediates for the plastics industry. Synthetic rubber, resin, glue, detergents, cosmetics, film and sheet plastics, synthetic fibres, and insecticides are all products that owe something to Grangemouth's hydrocarbon plants.
