British Aluminium bought 8.000 acres of the Scottish Highlands around Foyers in 1894 for the generation of hydro-electric power to refine aluminium. Foyers closed in 1967 and the generating station was sold to the North of Scotland Hydro-Electric Board.  In 1897 aluminium was a rare, relatively little known metal.
