Ossean is based in the historic village of
Charlestown, in the ancient kingdom of Fife, once the heart
of Scotland. Charlestown was built by Charles Elgin as a small
village to house the workers employed in coal, iron ore and
limestone mining and in the lime processing kilns of the Elgin
By 1775, Charlestown was one of the most important industrial
centres in Scotland processing the limestone mined locally into lime for
use in agriculture. Iron was used to manufacture large salt pans where sea
water was evapourated to produce salt. Coal, salt and quicklime were
transported by rail and ships to other ports throughout
Situated within Scotlands Silicon Glen and about 40
minutes from Edinburgh Airport, Charlestown provided an ideal setting for
a state of the art company built on the rock solid foundation at the heart
of the Scottish industrial revolution.
