NS4376 : Small waterfalls at the top of the Long Crags

Small waterfalls at the top of the Long Crags
Small waterfalls at the top of the Long Crags
A stream tumbles over the steep face of the crags in a series of small waterfalls.

Its source is a spring that is located only a few feet back from the edge of the cliff. I climbed up the slope to see it; it is shown here: NS4376 : A spring near the cliff edge on the Long Crags.
The Long Crags
The Long Crags, sometimes called the Lang Craigs, are the western escarpment of the Kilpatrick Hills. The lava (Clyde Plateau Volcanic Formation) from which they are made originated in widespread volcanic activity about 350 million years ago, in the Carboniferous Period. The escarpment is shown as "Long Craig" in Roy's Military Survey of Scotland (1740só50s). It gives its name to nearby Lang Craigs Woodland (c.2011): LinkExternal link
