Gate and stile
Gate and stile
See NS4180 : A stile on the footpath to Pappert Hill, where the same feature is shown from the other side. In the time since that picture was taken, the path has been improved considerably.

A short distance uphill (i.e., behind the photographer's position), the path crosses a burn: NS4180 : Path crossing burn / NS4180 : Path crossing burn.
Old drove road from Bonhill :: NS4580

This former drove road, much of which is no longer evident on the ground, leads from Bonhill, near a disused quarry, up to and over Pappert Hill, and then past the Common Kist LinkExternal link (a cist burial). It heads over the Hill of Standing Stones LinkExternal link where a cattle stance marker LinkExternal link can still be seen. It leads along the Lang Dyke LinkExternal link where another such marker LinkExternal link is visible. The route crossed the Gallangad Burn at the Common Ford LinkExternal link and the Carnock Burn at White Haughs. An early-nineteenth-century "Plan of Dumbarton Muir" records the above route. Beyond the Carnock Burn, the drove road divides; for further details, see page 28 of John Mitchell's "The Shielings and Drove Ways of Loch Lomondside" (2000).
