John Knox's Pulpit

The name given to a heavily eroded outcrop of calciferous sandstone on the southern slopes of West Lomond at the head of Glenvale. Although the Protestant reformer John Knox may never have preached here, it was the scene of Presbyterian conventicles held during the 'Killing Times' in the late 17th Century.

In 2004, this well-known landmark was controversially destroyed by the local authority after it was determined that it had become dangerously unstable.
