Cockmalane Cottage
Cockmalane Cottage
The cottage and associated structures can be seen in this distant view from the other side of the deep glen of the Gogo Water.

The cottage is located on the north-western slopes of Castle Hill; the summit of the hill is out of sight, to the left (it would not be well seen from this spot in any case), but an aerial photograph of the hilltop provides a fine view of an ancient fort that is located there: see NS2158 : Castle Hill for further information. In that item, there is a link to an aerial view (at Canmore) of the summit of Castle Hill, but the view also includes Cockmalane Cottage and its surroundings.

In the present photograph, note a structure on a hill in the distant background (it is 11 kilometres away), behind and a little to the right of the domestic wind turbine. That structure is the NS1451 : Old Lighthouse on Lighthouse Hill, Little Cumbrae Island (NS1451); see also LinkExternal link (at WoSAS).

For a closer view of the cottage, see NS2158 : Cockmalane (Cock-ma-lane) Largs.
