Description: Nicks Plantation Sandpit, near Dolphinton. Lanarkshire. Kippit Hill, Dolphinton. Looking south. A prominent mound of glacial meltwater sand. The mound forms the south-east extension of the Dolphinton Gap deposits. The sediments are thought to have been deposited by meltwater issuing from the valley of the South Medwin. The monument was erected in the memory of Kenneth MacKenzie of Dolphinton, killed in action in France during the 1914-18 War.
