Old Photograph Burnside Hotel Kinglassie Scotland

Old photograph of the Burnside Hotel in Kinglassie, Fife, Scotland. This Scottish village developed during the late 19th and early 20th centuries to house mine workers. Many mine workers perished or were injured during the life of the mine. The mine was plagued by water flooding problems. The Kinglassie Pit started in 1908 and closed in 1967. Glastian of Kinglassie, also known as Glastian of MacGlastian, died in Kinglassie in 830 AD. As bishop of Fife, Saint Glastian mediated in the bloody civil war between the Picts and the Scots. When the Picts were subjugated, Glastian did much to alleviate their lot. He is the patron saint of Kinglassie.
