Statistical Account
Grassom's County Map
Johnston's County Map
A range of hills extending through the Phs. [Parishes] of Campsie, Fintry, Killearn, & Strathblane. The face of the hills is broken with crags and glens; the north face more especially is very steep and precipitous; and on the summit and back part, is a deep moorground interspersed with moss, and forming a good pasture for sheep. The hills have the appearance of volcanic origin; and in many parts rude basaltic pillars are seen. In many places the hills appear statified; but the strata dip much and are sometimes nearly perpendicular. The stratified tracts contain coal, limestone freestone, ironstone &c. The highest point of the Campsie Fells is "Earl's Seat" which is about 1500 feet above the level of the Sea.
