Kippit Hill

A prominent little summit located next to the A702 road at Dolphinton in South Lanarkshire, Kippit Hill rises to 262m (860 feet) at Kippit to the north of the village. On its summit is an unusual memorial, comprising a beehive-shaped cairn with a vertical post rising from it. This was raised to the memory of a local landowner, Captain Kenneth Mackenzie, who was killed during service with the 9th Battalion of the Royal Scots in France on 27th August 1918. An Iron-Age cist, containing human remains, was found while excavating the foundations of the monument.
