For another view, and for further details, see NS4480 : Cornstone outcrop; that view was taken in rain, while this one was taken in a (rare) moment of hazy sunshine.

As in the other picture, the Lang Dyke is visible in the background, a little left of centre.
Cornstone outcrop
Cornstone is a form of limestone; in this area, it was formerly burned in kilns to produce lime for agricultural use.
Network of old limestone industry tracks :: NS4379
A very extensive network of ancient tracks on the moors in West Dunbartonshire links old quarries, ruined lime-kilns, and other sites connected with the local limestone-burning industry, which flourished in the 18th century. See LinkExternal link for a Geograph article about the network, and LinkExternal link for an annotated satellite view of it.
