NS3778 : Woods beside path

taken 5 years ago, near to Renton, West Dunbartonshire, Great Britain

Woods beside path
Woods beside path
Just out of shot to the right, a path approaches a dry-stone wall, as indicated on the map. This patch of woodland is just to the north of the path.

The ridge that can be seen receding from the photographer's position is a continuation of the one that is shown on the left in a view of an NS3778 : Old road. As stated there, this ridge (the more northerly of the pair) reappears in the woods, after an interruption that allows the path to weave between the two ridges (up to that point, the path runs to their north).

The ridge, here in the woods, was more apparent on a later occasion, with light snow cover: NS3778 : Ridge of old drove road in the woods.
Remains of a road :: NS3878
An old road ascended the slopes to the west of Renton and passed the southern end of Carman Loch (as it was known before it became a reservoir). A path ascending through the woods is part of the old road, but the most visible remains are on the flat muir to the south-east of the reservoir, where the road is bounded by two parallel gorse-bearing ridges spaced about 14 metres apart. See LinkExternal link for an annotated satellite view with marker pins on the line of the road.
