Lady Overtoun's Walk
Lady Overtoun's Walk
The track known as Lady Overtoun's Walk appears in the foreground, left of centre. For the main description, and for a view along it in the opposite direction, see NS4376 : Lady Overtoun's Walk.

The present view is one that Lady Overtoun would have appreciated; her home, NS4276 : Overtoun House, is directly ahead, just above the centre of the image, with its extensive wooded grounds.

Visible behind the house, on the near shore of the River Clyde, is Dumbarton Rock, which is a volcanic plug.
Lady Overtoun's Walk
The impressive remains of a track, high on the face of the Lang Craigs, built for Lady Overtoun. Her home, Overtoun House, and its extensive policies are well seen from this track. For the house, see LinkExternal link
Lang Craigs Woodland :: NS4377
The woodland occupies 240 hectares (590 acres) that were acquired by the Woodland Trust Scotland in 2011. It is named after the Lang Craigs, a line of cliffs making up the facade of the Kilpatrick Hills plateau. Lang Craigs Woodland is one of the 13 Commonwealth Woods, and is an SSSI (Site of Special Scientific Interest). New paths have been laid out, and about 160 hectares of new native woodland planted.
