The path leading up to the crossroads is part of two routes, the Stoneymollan Road and the Three Lochs Way. However, the Stoneymollan Road continues straight on at this point, while the Three Lochs Way heads off to the right.

(The track heading to the left is shown in NS3681 : Forestry track; it simply comes to an end at a clearing: NS3681 : Clearing at end of track.)

A signpost was later installed at this crossroads: NS3581 : New signpost at path junction.

See NS3581 : Logging in progress and NS3581 : A crossroads on the Stoneymollan Road for earlier views.
The Stoneymollan Road :: NS3681
This route from Balloch to the clachan of Kirkton was an old coffin road (see LinkExternal link for details); its destination was the burial ground at St Mahew's Chapel LinkExternal link near Cardross. The eastern part of this old road lies upon one of several parallel ridges; the underlying geology must therefore have played an important role in determining its course.
