Bruce's Flagstaff
Bruce's Flagstaff
This is not the original one (NS3875 : Bruce's Flagstaff), which was erected in 1928, and which was spliced partway up; this is its replacement. However, the symbolic weather vane, with crown and battle axe, is still present: NS3875 : Bruce's flagstaff: detail.

The view is across Brucehill Road. Cardross Road runs left to right behind the flagstaff, and Castlehill Road leads uphill behind it. See NS3875 : Bruce's Flagstaff for a view from another angle.
Bruce's Flagstaff
The original flagstaff was erected in 1928 to commemorate the (traditional) association of King Robert the Bruce with the Castlehill area of Dumbarton. See a Geograph article Link for a detailed discussion of the flagstaff and the traditions. By late 2018, it had been replaced by a different flagstaff (with octagonal cross-section, and not spliced), but it was still topped by the crown-and-battle-axe weather vane.
