This plan of land at Grangemouth, 1817, was surveyed by Hugh Baird, Chief Engineer of the Union Canal during its construction.
The plan was part of the disposition of sale of land by Lord Dundas to the Forth & Clyde Navigation Company. Lord Dundas’s father, Sir Lawrence Dundas, had been one of the original investors in the Forth & Clyde Navigation Company, holding 20 percent of the company’s shares and had also developed the port of Grangemouth in 1777.
The signatures of Lord Dundas and Hugh Baird appear on this plan, making it of particular historical interest.
