The present photograph is a view from the other side, looking across the bed of the burn in NS4178 : Auchenreoch Glen; the level of the burn was unusually low after a period of warm, dry weather.
The Gates of Sodom

This was a name used locally, from the second half of the nineteenth century, if not earlier, for a large, prominent, natural gate-like feature in the lower reaches of Auchenreoch Glen. Another feature, called Lot's Wife, is located not far upstream: Link
