Sites and Monument Record: Drove Road (SMR 1983)

From the Faughlin Burn Bridge the drove road climbs the hill above the Carron Valley. It skirts Tarduff Hill to the south, with Darroch Hill on its south. Denny Muir provided opportunities for stances. The road then descends to Broadside where it is now lost amongst later developments.
The drove road consists of two parallel drystone dykes set around 10m apart. It is probable that it was not metalled and that the cattle were able to graze as they moved. Their dung would have fertilised the way.
