This place was built around 1905 by GNSR after a site closer to Aberdeen became too crowded.

From a quote in the Hidden Glasgow forums it sounds like this place used to be massive.
Buildings included -

"An Office Building

Management offices, laboratories, stores

Locomotive Works Building

Loco Erecting Shop, Boiler Shop, Machine & Fitting Shop, Boiler House

Carriage & Wagon Building

Repairs of carraiges and wagons (later adapted for Diesel Multiple Units)

Paint Building

Paint Shop & Electricians Shop

Smithy & Forge Building

..and tyre furnace, brass foundry, tinsmiths, coppersmiths, motor vehicle repair shop"

It closed in 1969 but was reused by Kvaerner for oil related industry and they stopped using the place in 2003.
A number of the buildings have been demolished, partially to make way for a huge Tesco's right next to the works.
As far as I'm aware the site can't be used for much just now because the ground's been contaminated through years of chemical spills.
