Dry-stone wall
Dry-stone wall
The dyke is marked on the first-edition OS map (c.1860). The tracks shown in NS4377 : Ancient trackway and NS4377 : Ancient trackway continue uninterrupted through the line of the dyke. Those deep tracks were not worn by people, nor by vehicles of recent times (there are no gaps in the wall). Instead, they considerably pre-date the wall.

The low broad shape of Meikle White Hill is in the background, on the right; it is one of the destinations of the tracks (see the links just cited).

Not far to the east of this point, a much older field boundary meets this dyke: NS4377 : Dry-stone wall and older field boundary.
Network of old limestone industry tracks :: NS4379
A very extensive network of ancient tracks on the moors in West Dunbartonshire links old quarries, ruined lime-kilns, and other sites connected with the local limestone-burning industry, which flourished in the 18th century. See LinkExternal link for a Geograph article about the network, and LinkExternal link for an annotated satellite view of it.
