The Mony
The Mony
The stone shown here is located at the eastern entrance of the NS3875 : Cunninghame Graham Memorial Park; see that photograph for a view of the stone in context.

For an explanation of "the Mony", see the main description of the park: NS3875 : Cunninghame Graham Memorial Park.
Castle Hill and Arthur's Seat
There are two small wooded knolls in the NS3875 : Cunninghame Graham Memorial Park, to the west of Castlehill Road in Dumbarton. The first-edition OS map, surveyed in 1860, calls the smaller knoll Arthur's Seat (NS38407590), and the larger one, 100 metres to the east, Castle Hill (NS38507588). Only because of the name and a tradition does the map show an antiquity, "site of Castle", on Castle Hill; there are and were no remains here.
