The base of a building is visible in the foreground. There is little else, other than traces of a few nearby boundaries (NS3976 : Old boundary), to indicate the former presence of Mains of Cardross Farm. For further information, and for links to related sites and structures, see NS3976 : Site of Mains of Cardross Farm.

Carman Hill can be seen in the background, right of centre.

At the time of writing, OS mapping shows a curling pond about 200 metres NNW of the Mains of Cardross site. However, that pond is dried up, and has been for many years; it is now very little different from the surrounding grassland, although its outline can still be discerned in satellite imagery.
Mains of Cardross

Mains of Cardross was a farm near the River Leven, 550 metres ESE of present-day Dalmoak Farm (Young's Farm), with which its former fields are now associated.

See a Geograph article Link for much more on this area and its relation to the site of the Cardross residence of King Robert the Bruce.
