For further information, and for a view from a quite different angle, see another contributor's earlier photograph of the monument: NS4373 : Henry Bell Monument, Bowling, West Dunbartonshire (among his many other works, Brian was the author of a book about Henry Bell).

See also NS4373 : Dunglass Castle and the Henry Bell Monument, which shows the obelisk in its situation beside the castle. That item also mentions a conical doocot, which can be seen in the present photograph, below and to the left of the obelisk; all but the very top of the doocot is covered in vegetation. Another photograph showing the monument is NS4373 : Henry Bell Monument.

A similar but much smaller obelisk in Helensburgh was also erected in honour of Henry Bell; see LinkExternal linkLinkExternal linkLinkExternal link
