Scottish Iron Works 25 inch scale mapped 1858
In The Economic history of the British Iron and Steel industry 1784-1878 (London, 1967) Alan Birch provides a list -Appendix II, p.389 of Iron Furnaces in Blast, July 1849. For the Scottish blast furnaces, I have located each one on the National Library of Scotland's digital maps website, First Series 25 inch to the mile maps - surveyed 1856, published 1860. The following are the captured images for the iron works (apart from Carron). More details will be added to help identify the sites, however the name of the iron works is shown in each image.

Garscube Iron Works -only one furnace in blast in July 1849. No rail connection shown, so may have been out of use by time of 1849 survey.
Lochgelly Iron Works - in Fife, not covered by First Series 25 inch maps, so this image taken from First Series 6 inch to mile map. (Surveyed 1840s)
Forth Iron Works - in Fife, not covered by First Series 25 inch maps, so this image taken from First Series 6 inch to mile map. (Surveyed 1840s)
