There are many towns and cities in Scotland where Baroness Thatcher is still a contentious figure.
Her government's policies set her against the miners in the mid 1980s.
The workers at Polmaise Colliery, near Stirling, were heavily involved in the national strike of 1984.
BBC Alba's John McDiarmid went to meet a family caught up in the turmoil and to get their views following Mrs Thatcher's death.
