Beside the Greenock Cut
The picture was taken from a NS2374 : Path beside the Greenock Cut; part of that path is in the foreground. The two metal objects in the ground can also be seen in that picture.

In the present view, the houses in the background are in NS2374 : Drumillan Hill housing estate (left) and at Braeside (right).
Greenock Cut
The Greenock Cut is an aqueduct built in the 19th century to convey water from the reservoir of Loch Thom to Greenock, for drinking water and for powering local industries. The Cut opened in 1827 and its engineer was Robert Thom. In 1845 it was supplemented by another aqueduct, the Kelly Cut, which linked Kelly Reservoir to the start of the Greenock Cut. The Cut was superseded by a tunnel in 1971 and is now a designated Ancient Monument. For more background and photographs please see the article by Thomas Nugent
