Gleniffer Braes

A series of north facing slopes located above Paisley and Johnstone in Renfrewshire, the Gleniffer Braes extend west for 3 miles (5 km) from the Brownside Braes to Howwood. They rise to 230m / 754 feet at Sergeant Law and are capped by ancient Basalt lava flows, dating from the Carboniferous period, which represent part of the Clyde Plateau Lavas. The Braes o' Gleniffer is a notable poem by Robert Tannahill (1774 - 1810), who used to walk here.
