Mound beside the River Leven :: Shared Description

A conspicuous artificial mound whose original purpose is unclear. Some stories about its origin were passed on to me: one is that it was built by the inhabitants of Strathleven House to block the cones of Dumbarton Glassworks (c.17771850) from view. Whether or not that is so, the mound, shown on early OS maps, does lie on the line between the house and the former site of the glassworks.
