Trig point on Dumbarton Rock
Dumbarton Rock has two peaks: the lower one, to the east, is called the Beak; the higher one, whose summit is shown here, is called White Tower Crag: NS3974 : Dumbarton Castle: White Tower Crag.

As well as the trig point and flagstaff that are visible in this photo, a direction indicator is located here (just to the photographer's left, as this picture was taken); see: NS3974 : Dumbarton Rock: White Tower Crag.

In the background, on the right, three tower blocks (NS3975 : The high flats at West Bridgend) can be seen, with NS3975 : Dumbarton Bridge spanning the River Leven in front of them. The much larger body of water visible off to the left is the River Clyde.

[The trig point has the flush bracket number S5015.]
