From Graces Guide

of Pentland Works, Loanhead, Midlothian

1871 James Scott (1810-1884) took an interest in the nascent Scottish oil industry. He erected works at the mineral fields at Clippens, in Renfrewshire.

He also acquired extensive shale fields at Pentland, where he also erected works.

1882 The business merged into what became Clippens Oil Co Ltd, of which he became chairman.

1893 The company was registered on 28 June, to take over the properties of a company of the same name. [1]
