taken 7 years ago, near to Johnstone, Renfrewshire, Great Britain

Sundial on Johnstone Castle
Sundial on Johnstone Castle
The setting is rather spoiled by the adjacent pipe (whose run-off has also stained it), but this sundial, dated 1700, is still of interest. It is fixed high on the south-facing wall of NS4362 : Johnstone Castle. Its location can be picked out, on the right, in NS4362 : Johnstone Castle.

This is a vertical direct south dial (see NS2683 : Sundial beside Rhu Parish Church), but it has lost its gnomon.
Johnstone Castle
A tower house, much modified over the centuries, which is based on a core that dates from the sixteenth century or earlier. See LinkExternal link (at WoSAS) for full details.
