Bomb crater near Old Largs Road
The crater is shown from the other side in NS2673 : Bomb crater near Old Largs Road. In the present view, a fence whose course is marked on the 1:25000 map can be seen not far behind the crater. Old Largs Road is about 63 metres beyond the fence, and is parallel to it, but the road itself is not visible from this slightly lower ground.

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 may be the result of 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; there were other decoys on these moors.
