On this visit, I measured the crater; it is 6.5 metres in diameter. See NS4178 : Bomb crater beside Auchenreoch Glen for an earlier photograph, taken from the other side of the deep glen of the Murroch Burn, and for further details.

Highdykes Farm is visible in the background, almost on the skyline.

See LinkExternal link for an annotated satellite view that shows the location of some of the craters and the remains of the Starfish Decoy. See LinkExternal link for further discussion.
