NS3477 : The Muirholm Hotel (NS3477 : The Muirholm, Cardross) is in the background, on the right.

The stone visible just ahead bears a plaque (NS3477 : Plaque on the Napier Stone), erected in 2000, with a brief commentary on the Napiers; specifically, on the Napiers of Kilmahew (on whom, see NS3578 : Kilmahew Castle) and the Napiers of Merchiston. For example, it states that John Napier of logarithm fame was of the Merchiston Napiers (it does not mention the Robert Napier who is sometimes called the Father of Clyde Shipbuilding see NS3975 : The Napier Vault but, judging by his heraldic arms at least, he appears to have been of the Kilmahew Napiers).

Not far beyond the stone is the entrance to an area of housing called Scott Gardens, named after Cardross man William Stein Scott, a campaigner for social housing.

See NS3477 : Main Road through Cardross for a view in the opposite direction.
