Dumbarton Central

The ancient capital of the Kingdom of Strathclyde, Dumbarton was founded in the 5th Century on the north bank of the River Clyde. The town is dominated by the 334 Million year old volcanic plug, Dumbarton Rock. On the rock sits Dumbarton Castle, an important fortification during the Scottish Wars of Independence and the Marian Civil War with a history dating back to the iron age.
