The town of Dumbarton was known to the ancient Britons as Alcluith, the ‘rock on the Clyde’, and to the Scots in Dalriada, who spoke Gaelic, as Dun Breatann - 'the fort of the Britons'. It takes its name from a rocky outcrop on the Clyde that was once a fortress of the Britons of Strathclyde. The rock sits at the end of the River Leven which flows from Loch Lomond.
