Limekiln

I do love walking up and around the Lomonds …

… the views are fantastic whatever the weather …

… and this time I discovered a building …

… at first I thought it was something to do with the old railway line …

… but it turned out to be an 18th century limekiln used to produce lime
which was then carted off to make the land more fertile …

… and of course it is all blocked up so can’t get inside …

 … hard work indeed …
