NS2874 : Possible remains of an old boundary

taken 8 months ago, near to Greenock, Inverclyde, Great Britain

Possible remains of an old boundary
Possible remains of an old boundary
The view is from beside a burn, which, at the time of writing, large-scale OS maps call the Craigie Burn, but which is called the Craigieknowe Burn at most other mapping scales; the second of those names seems to be the correct one.

By chance, I came across the linear feature that is shown receding from view in the present picture. It is just one of several such features, as satellite imagery reveals.

It is perhaps the remains of an old field boundary; as I learned when preparing to upload this picture, medieval rig and furrow traces have been reported from this area (see LinkExternal link at Canmore), and it is likely that the remains of some boundaries would also survive.
