Cleft at the edge of the cliff
This deep cleft is at the top of the escarpment of NS4376 : The Long Crags, and it slices obliquely through the edge of the cliff. The view is from a path that weaves around it: NS4377 : Path avoiding a deep cleft.

In the background, the hill visible right of centre is Doughnot Hill (NS4477).
The Long Crags :: NS4376
The Long Crags, sometimes called the Lang Craigs, are the western escarpment of the Kilpatrick Hills. The lava (Clyde Plateau Volcanic Formation) from which they are made originated in widespread volcanic activity about 350 million years ago, in the Carboniferous Period. The escarpment is shown as "Long Craig" in Roy's Military Survey of Scotland (1740só50s). It gives its name to nearby Lang Craigs Woodland (c.2011): LinkExternal link
