NS3581 : Old and new dry-stone walls

taken 3 years ago, 3 km from Arden, Argyll And Bute, Great Britain

Old and new dry-stone walls
Old and new dry-stone walls
A new wall is in the left foreground; it was built less than ten years ago (whether as part of a dry-stone-walling course or not I do not know). Behind and parallel to it is a much older wall, which, near the right-hand edge of this picture, can be seen to make a sharp turn to head away from the path. Its course is marked on the 1:25000 map.

Near that corner of the old wall there used to be an OS bench mark, a rivet. The stone in which it is set was knocked to the ground a few years ago when that part of the wall was damaged during forestry operations. The rivet has not moved far, but, because it is no longer in its intended place, the bench mark, as such, can be considered "destroyed".

Part of the Firth of Clyde is in the right background. The area in the left middle distance was cleared a few years ago, and is shown wooded in another contributor's earlier picture: NS3581 : Darleith Muir Tree Line and Gate.

The present picture was taken just a few metres from a NS3581 : Gate on the Stoneymollan Road, the same gate as is shown in the picture just mentioned.
