NS3681 : Entering the woods

taken 13 years ago, 3 km from Balloch, West Dunbartonshire, Great Britain

Entering the woods
Entering the woods
The feel of this track changed dramatically when all of the trees on the right-hand side were cut down a couple of years later; compare the appearance of the same section of track in 2009: NS3681 : Gate on the Stoneymollan Road footpath (the present photo was taken from just beyond that gate).
The Stoneymollan Road
This route from Balloch to the clachan of Kirkton was an old coffin road (see LinkExternal link for details); its destination was the burial ground at St Mahew's Chapel Link near Cardross. The eastern part of this old road lies upon one of several parallel ridges; the underlying geology must therefore have played an important role in determining its course.
