CLYDE MAP 2: CARDROSS to west of DUMBARTON TOWN Hinterland Geology and Coastal Geomorphology: Raised beach deposits overlie undifferentiated glacial till. The shoreline is irregular and comprises a large expanse of mud and boulders. Erosion Class: This section of coastline is both accreting and eroding. Sediment nourishment towards the shoreline is considered to be reasonably high in this highly dynamic tidal environment. Accretion of mud is ongoing towards the MHWST area but is easily lost during periods of rough weather through the tidal cycles. Built Heritage & Archaeology: Coastal defence features dominated this cell, in the form of sea walls, probably mainly constructed to protect the railway line that runs very close to the coast in this area. A possible fish trap was also observed in the east of this cell. This cell has no notable archaeological remains on the hinterland, with the exception of a World War II anti-aircraft battery at Murray's farm (NMRS no. NS37SW 19). A 20th century wreck was identified at NS 3268 7826 during the recent Shorewatch survey.
