" The Fire " Memorial at Craigallian Loch
on the West Highland Way from Mugdock Country Park to Carbeth
The Fire at Craigallian Loch was a beacon of hope to many poor,
out-of-work, young people in the Great Depression of the 1930s.
Many of those who sat around its flames were an inspiration
to a later generation of walkers and climbers.
By its flickering light were born famous mountaineering clubs
such as the Creagh Dhu, Lomond and Ptarmigan clubs.
The memorial on the site of the fire has been erected to commemorate this legacy.
