The Stoneymollan Road
The Stoneymollan Road
When this picture was taken, the path led westwards through the woods on Darleith Muir, emerging into the open at a gate; see NS3581 : A gate on the Stoneymollan Road. The present photograph was taken from just beyond the gate, and is a view down towards the River Clyde.

For a similar view in winter, see NS3581 : The Stoneymollan Road.

[From this point, with good visibility, some of the peaks of Arran can be seen. For example, in the left-hand side of this photo, above and to the left of a bright cluster of rooftops (of tower blocks in Greenock), Caisteal Abhail (NR9644) and surrounding hills on Arran are distantly visible, projecting above the nearer hills.]
The Stoneymollan Road :: NS3681
This route from Balloch to the clachan of Kirkton was an old coffin road (see LinkExternal link for details); its destination was the burial ground at St Mahew's Chapel LinkExternal link near Cardross. The eastern part of this old road lies upon one of several parallel ridges; the underlying geology must therefore have played an important role in determining its course.
