Mound beside the River Leven :: Shared Description

A conspicuous artificial mound beside the River Leven, and shown on early maps, opposite the end of Dalquhurn Point. Of the theories about its origin, a plausible one is that it was built by the occupants of Strathleven House to block the cones (and smoke) of Dumbarton Glassworks (c.17771850) from view; the mound does indeed lie on the line between the house and the former glassworks site. Indistinct remains of a kerb can be seen on the western side of its base.
