Sea wall and Donald's Light
Sea wall and Donald's Light
The beacon at the end of the sea wall is called Donald's Light: NS4572 : Donald's Quay Light. There is a similar section of sea wall on the other side of the beacon; see: NS4572 : River beacon on the railway wall. Part of the Erskine Bridge is visible in the background.

See NS4573 : The shore near Old Kilpatrick for a view in the opposite direction from roughly the same point.
Donald's Quay Light :: NS4572
This is one of a pair of nineteenth-century lights that were erected to mark bends in the River Clyde (its twin is at Dalmuir). Donald's Quay, now long gone, was the site of a ferry crossing, and the ruin of the ferry-keeper's cottage is located nearby, beside the canal. The light was repainted in 2013, by which time access to the decaying platform on which it stands had been blocked.
