taken 3 years ago, near to Dumbarton, West Dunbartonshire, Great Britain

Path beside Dumbarton Rock
Path beside Dumbarton Rock
The path is cramped, with the cliffs that form the north-eastern side of Dumbarton Rock on the left, and the wall of Dumbarton FC's football ground on the right (NS4074 : Dumbarton FC and Dumbarton Rock; the actual name of the stadium varies, depending on the current sponsors).

The path opens out again further ahead, but alongside this narrower part of it are some boundary markers: NS3974 : Dumbarton Rock: War Department boundary stone no. 4 / NS4074 : Dumbarton Rock: War Department boundary stone no. 5 / NS4074 : Dumbarton Rock: War Department boundary stone no. 6.

The patch-forming species beside the path included NS4074 : Alexanders, which, on this occasion, was galled by a rust fungus: NS4074 : Rust fungus galls on Alexanders.
