Grieve Hill in Ayrshire is an open-cast coal mine. The mine and the land surrounding it was once owned by Sir James Stirling, Lord Provost of Edinburgh in the late 18th century. Stirling owned and managed several sugar plantations in Jamaica including one called, Hampden, and the wealth generated from his plantations led him to buy several large properties in Scotland.
