War Department boundary stones at Dumbarton Rock
The 25" second-edition OS map, surveyed in 1897, shows a series of nine locations, labelled B.S.W.D. № 1 to № 9, leading around the base of the Rock from west, via north, to east. Delimiting land under military rather than Burgh jurisdiction, these stones, which are diverse in size and in design, probably date from the 1850s/1860s.
