Pit (former limestone quarrying)
This is same pit as is shown at NS4380 : Pit (former limestone quarrying) (see that item for more details), but here it is viewed in the opposite direction.

Rainwater has dissolved channels through many of the limestone boulders that remain at the sides of the pit (see, for example, the rightmost stone in this photo, where some of these holes are visible).
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.
