NS4477 : Fences near the Doughnot Hill

taken 5 years ago, 3 km from Milton, West Dunbartonshire, Great Britain

Fences near the Doughnot Hill
Fences near the Doughnot Hill
From oldest to most recent, the three parallel boundaries here are the dry-stone wall, the metal fence on its near side, and the deer fence that was created only recently on the other side. This is the boundary of a Woodland Trust (Scotland) area, as shown on the map. The picture was taken from the outside.

See NS4477 : Dry-stone dyke and deer fence for a view from another angle.

Logging operations were taking place on the slopes visible in the background. On account of the work taking place there, that area, which is on the far side of the gate shown in NS4377 : Lang Craigs Woodland: a new fence, was temporarily inaccessible: a notice on the gate explained that if the chain on a tree-felling machine happened to snap, the resulting metal fragments might travel almost like bullets; for that reason, the operator's cab has bulletproof glass.
