A former industrial village in Old Monkland parish, which now forms a southern suburb of Coatbridge in North Lanarkshire, Dundyvan is located between Langloan and Whifflet, a quarter-mile (0.5 km) south southeast of the town centre. Coal had been mined hereabouts for some time, but the village developed as rows of cottages to house the workers at the Dundyvan Iron Works. This substantial undertaking, combining blast furnaces with and a malleable iron works, was founded in 1834 on the policies of a mansion known as Dundyvan Cottage. Also located here were the Eglinton Silica Brick Works (1860s), the British Tube Works (1889) and a boiler works. Some industry remains, but most has been cleared and replaced by housing.
