The quarry shown here is surrounded by a wall of rock, except for an opening on the southern side that leads directly to the playing fields of Keil School (the school is now closed): NS3874 : Former playing fields of Keil School.

The quarry is cut into the cliffs of an ancient shoreline, now raised up.
Keil School :: NS3875

An independent school founded at Keil House (NR67670788), at the southern tip of Kintyre, in 1915. After a disastrous fire, it relocated, in 1925, to the mansion house of Helenslee (NS38677506), which is in the Kirktonhill area of Dumbarton. The school remained there until its final closure in 2000. The building itself subsequently remained unoccupied, and it was damaged by fire early in 2013. A housing development was created around it; Helenslee House itself was supposed to be restored as a part of that development, but, as of the end of 2016, that has not yet occurred.
