Aside from the monumental hydro-electric schemes and the Lochaber smelter, the physical legacy of this industrial enterprise’s presence in the area is to be seen in the company villages of Kinlochleven and Inverlochy, and the company’s houses at Foyers.

British Aluminium also managed large estates in the area, and by 1971 was the eighth largest landowner in Scotland.
