The crater is about 75 metres to the west of the road, and only about 12 metres west of a fence that is behind the photographer's position, and whose course is shown on the 1:25000 map. Round Hill is in the background.

For a view of the crater from the other side, with the fence visible behind it, see NS2673 : Bomb crater near Old Largs Road.
Bomb craters above Greenock
The Greenock Blitz was in May 1941: NS2676 : Memorial for those killed in the Greenock air raids. Some of the bomb craters on the moors above the town are the result of several decoy fires that were deployed here during the Second World War; see LinkExternal link (at Secret Scotland) for details. The control bunker for one of those decoy sites (NS2773 : Whitelees Moor - Bombing Decoy Control Bunker) can be seen at NS27567342, and there were other decoys on these moors.
