NS4984 : Path beside entrance of Finnich Glen

taken 5 years ago, near to Craighat, Stirling, Great Britain

Path beside entrance of Finnich Glen
Path beside entrance of Finnich Glen
At its north-eastern extremity, the steep-gorge of NS4984 : Finnich Glen ends fairly abruptly, and the NS4985 : The Carnock Burn emerges to flow through open meadow.

Where the gorge comes to an end, a path high above the south-eastern side of the gorge also descends to the open meadow. The present picture is a view back up that path, which is depicted on large-scale OS mapping.
Finnich Glen
This glen, which used to be called Ashdow, is a chasm up to 70 feet deep, and, in places, no more than 15 or 20 feet wide at any height. It was carved through the Old Red Sandstone by the Carnock Burn. The burn flows around a prominent stone called the Devil's Pulpit, whose name is now often applied to the glen as a whole. Near that stone, a steep stairway, built long ago in a crevice, descends into the gorge: LinkExternal link
