Exposed limestone
Exposed limestone
This was the largest example in the area, but several similar outcrops were visible nearby.

As is clear from the contour lines on the accompanying map, as well as from the photograph itself, the land falls away rather steeply to the north-west.

In the middle distance, the large area of disturbance, right of centre, is Auchincarroch landfill site. The areas of housing on the left include Balloch and Tullichewan (NS3881), and the large body of water is Loch Lomond.

Behind it, the skyline hills in the right-hand side of the image include, about midway between the centre and the right-hand edge, a view directly into NS3091 : Glen Finlas, and, almost at the right-hand edge, an oblique view across Glen Luss (NS3493).
