This apparently random jumble of stone blocks is one of several similar sculpture forms in the park along the foreshore in the town of Bo’ness (properly Borrowstouness), Falkirk District, Scotland.
In the distance, on the right of the shot on the north shore of the River Forth can be seen the 183 m (600 feet) chimney stack of Longannet coal-fired power station. Longannet is on the shore of the upper Firth of Forth near Kincardine on Forth, Fife. It is the most powerful generating station in Scotland.
When constructed it was the largest and most powerful coal-fired station in Europe, and it is now the third largest, after Bełchatów in Poland and Drax in Yorkshire, England. It is a regional landmark, dominating the Forth skyline. Like most other power stations in Scotland it lacks cooling towers, relying instead on river water as a coolant.
