This feature is about the family who shaped the Monklands area - indeed they had an effect on the whole of Scotland.  At one time they were farmers but as true entrepreneurs they recognised the potential in Iron & Steel.  This is a brief glimpse into this famous family.  Throughout the article you will notice many names that are remembered in  local street names.
