The text on the eastern side (the near side) is as follows:

"Here burned the Craigallian Fire.
During the depression of the 1930s
it was a beacon of companionship
and hope for young unemployed people
who came from Glasgow and Clydebank
seeking adventure in Scotland's wild
places. Their pioneering spirit helped to
make the Scottish countryside free for
all to roam."

The following is inscribed around the edge:

"Long may old Craigallian Woods
Send forth abundance of their goods.
May the fire be always lit
So that we may come and sit."
Site of the Craigallian Fire
See LinkExternal link ('The Craigallian Fire Memorial Site') for the historical and social background. The site was, for a time, marked by a slab, thought to be the base of the original fire. A memorial was formally set up there on the 15th of September 2012.
