With an annual production capacity in excess of nine million tonnes, Glensanda is the largest granite quarry in Europe and the flagship site for Aggregate Industries. The quarry is located on the banks of Loch Linnhe and is unique in that it's only accessible by sea due to the surrounding rugged mountainous terrain. It's renowned for being one of the most efficient mineral extraction operations in the world, whereby granite is crushed at the top of the mountain, then fed into a hole taking the rock 300 metres down and out of sight into the core of the mountain, then through a 1.8km horizontal tunnel to the foreshore where the rock is washed, screened and stored ready for ship loading.
