Descriptive Gazetteer Entry for Ardmore

Ardmore, a beautiful wooded promontory in Cardross parish, Dumbartonshire, 2¾ miles SSE of Helensburgh. It connects with the mainland by a narrow isthmus; projects about a mile into the Firth of Clyde; expands into a circular head 103 feet high and about 5 furlongs in diameter, popularly called the Hill of Ardmore; consists elsewhere of flat alluvium; and, at low water, is flanked only by bare silt or foreshore. It forms a fine feature in the magnificent lagoon-like scenery of the Firth- Ardmore House stands upon it, amid pleasant grounds, and is a good modern mansion
