The Rocks
Some time after taking this picture, I learned that the area shown here is known locally as NS4660 : The Rocks; see that picture and NS4660 : The Rocks for a closer view.

This photograph was taken from NS4660 : The Tannahill Walkway. For context, see NS4660 : Slopes below the Tannahill Walkway, which was taken from the same spot as the present photograph; in that wider view, the Rocks are just right of centre.

Even from the walkway, these rock outcrops caught my attention. Much less conspicuous on the ground are the remains of a farmstead called Hillock; see NS4660 : The remains of Hillock.
