Old curling pond near Dalmoak Farm :: Shared Description

The pond is 50 metres long (WSW—NNE) by about 30 metres wide; it is now often dry, and it can therefore be hard to spot, either on the ground or in satellite imagery. It is close to the former site — Link — of Mains of Cardross Farm, but the field is now associated with Dalmoak Farm. The curling pond first appears on OS maps after the Second World War. The road that used to lead to it from the north (before the A82 was built) passed a large mound that was known locally as "the ashy coup" (also spelled "cowp"), and whose site more or less corresponds to the present-day Dalmoak Recycling Centre.
