NS4276 : Path through the woods

taken 8 years ago, near to Bellsmyre, West Dunbartonshire, Great Britain

Path through the woods
Path through the woods
This is part of a path through the woods that lie just to the west of Overtoun House. The route is known locally as the Nature Trail.

The part of the path shown here leads south, towards the photographer's position, and then turns to the east. The Overtoun Burn flows just to its left (west), and there is a rising slope on the other side. A waterfall, called Spardie Linn, is located about 100 metres ESE of this spot.

A feature of interest can be seen, indistinctly, among the vegetation on the right; see NS4276 : Remains of a turbine house.
Overtoun House Nature Trail :: NS4175
Locally, the woodland walks within the Overtoun Estate are still collectively known as "the Nature Trail", in memory of the fact that they used to be laid out as a nature trail with numbered marker posts (the Nature Trail, made with funds left over from the Quality of Life Experiment, officially opened on the 26th of April 1980). New waymarkers were added, both here and in the adjacent Lang Craigs Woodland ( LinkExternal link ), in May 2015. For more on the Nature Trail, see Overtoun House: LinkExternal link
