NS4783 : Field system: parallel ridges

taken 8 years ago, 3 km from Craighat, Stirling, Great Britain

Field system: parallel ridges
Field system: parallel ridges
See NS4783 : Old field boundary for the main description of the field system.

The present photograph was taken from the southern boundary. From this point, a pair of parallel ridges, shown here, lead northwards (downhill) into the interior (perhaps a kind of access corridor, used when moving livestock?).

Although the remains of these boundaries are now low earthen banks, it is likely that all of them originally had thorns on top, in order to form effective barriers.

The woods in the background, at the bottom of the slope, are in the adjacent grid squares to the north and to the north-west. The prominent peak on the left is Ben Lomond (NN3602).
East Cameron field system
A network of earthen banks forming an extensive field system associated with the long-disappeared farmstead of East Cameron (see LinkExternal link for details).
