Meteor Hole - this huge crater was caused by a meteor from space which landed in Kilsyth in the year 155BC (Before Croy) Unfortunately it missed the town and no-one was injured. When the Great Plague broke out in 1997 the townsfolk would gather here to pray and sacrifice farm animals to ward off evil spirits (usually from Queenzieburn) Fortunately for locals, the good people of Croy took pity on them and fed and clothed them, even taught some of them to read and write. It is hoped by the next millenium that the townsfolk will have stopped scrounging off Croy and become self-sufficient.
