It was easy to find the carp park. But it was almost full. Nice walk up to the hill. 300 meter ascent in 2 km. View is beautiful. You see the whole loch lomond lake. Definitely worth to see it.

We had a great walk up Conic Hill and enjoyed the view on a warm sunny day in May. It took us about an hour and 15 minutes to get to the top.

An easy climb, up a very good path... when you reach the view point about half way up you get one of the best views in Scotland over Loch Lomond.
