This is part of the same feature as shown in NS4275 : Dumbowie Hill: lower terrace, but on the northern side of the peak. Part of the River Clyde can be seen in the right background. The nearer body of water on the left is NS4275 : Whyte's Dam (or Loch Bowie, as on the map).

Dumbowie Hill

The hill originated as a volcanic plug on the edge of the Kilpatrick Hills plateau. The hill has two peaks (NW+SE); the south-eastern one has several terraces on its slopes, and the remains of an Iron Age fort, Dumbuie Dun, on top: see LinkExternal link (at Canmore) for archaeological details. The names are equivalent: "Dumbowie" is pronounced "Dumbuie" (from the Gaelic for "yellow dun/fort", and probably referring to the gorse-covered slopes).
