NS4674 : Fence and dry-stone wall

taken 3 years ago, near to Old Kilpatrick, West Dunbartonshire, Great Britain

Fence and dry-stone wall
Fence and dry-stone wall
The fence continues down the slope behind the photographer's position (NS4674 : Fence on the moor and NS4674 : Fence on a slope in woodland), but the dry-stone wall beside it begins quite abruptly at this spot (i.e., there are no traces of broken-down wall south of this point).

OS maps show the line of this boundary from the first edition (1860) onwards. It seems unlikely that the dry-stone wall ever continued down the steep slope just to the south of here (see the second of the links just given), and the boundary there in 1860 may have consisted, instead, of an earlier fence.

About 60 metres ahead, on the other side of the dry-stone wall, are the remains of a sheepfold: NS4674 : Old sheepfold. Its location also appears in the background of NS4674 : Path in the Kilpatrick Hills.
