Strathclyde Geoconservation Group members have created a series of short information sheets to help introduce local geology to a wider audience.  Dunglass is one such site.

Dumgoyne and the layers of lava on the Campsie Fells can be readily seen around the Blane Valley area of Central Scotland. Dunglass is a lower but prominent volcanic neck or plug that can be seen a little closer from Strathkelvin Railway Path, part of the long distance John Muir Way and National Cycle Network Route 755. Buses pass through Strathblane and cars can be parked near the Strathblane village church where the walking and cycle path is signposted.


The information sheet tells visitors about access to the path and a little about the local geology.
