Holmes Summit

Holmes Summit represents the highest point on the Airdrie-Bathgate Railway, rising to 200m (656 feet) at the eastern end of Hillend Reservoir in North Lanarkshire, a short distance west of Forrestfield and the border with West Lothian. The Summit is named in memory of Derek Holmes, Operations Director with Network Rail and Chairman of the Institution of Rail Operators, who died shortly before the line was completed.
