Old field boundary
Old field boundary
The dyke was part of a field system associated with the farmstead of Stanelymoor; the farm buildings themselves have gone, but they were located beside the nearest tree, left of centre in the middle distance; see NS4560 : The remains of Stanelymoor for the main description of that site.

The plateau of the Kilpatrick Hills provides the distant backdrop.
Stanelymoor field system
Although the farmstead of Stanelymoor has been cleared away, the site of its farm buildings, beside a footpath in Gleniffer Braes Country Park, can still be picked out. A field system associated with the farmstead is still visible.
