The car park at Balmaha is free, and from there a path leads easily to the start of the hill walk. It's a very popular walk and you will always see hordes of people, young and old, along with dogs. There are also a lot...More
A very good walk with a reasonable path. Its fairly steep in places, its 350m high but allow a good 2-3 hours for this walk. an experienced fit walker could do it up and down in 1 1/2 hrs. Walking boots are a must, we...More
A great small hill (361m) situated on the Highland Boundary Fault dividing the Scottish Lowlands from the Scottish Highlands. From the summit you can actually trace the faultline across the countryside. An excellent viewpoint across the lower loch with fine views to the mountains in...More
JC & I tried this as our first hill walk since school (some 23yrs ago) & managed it although we both found it tough going on a roasting hot day with very little water due to a leakage. The car park is free, you access...More

Small fly like insects about the size of a full stop ;o) Depending on the time of year, Peak season Loads, Colder weather fewer, Don't know what really works best out of all the replants ?

Can't agree. It's steep and if it's been raining very slippery. The path is narrow and if busy very tricky in places. Definitely doable but with correct footwear. Hiking boots. Ankle support. Good grip. Not trainers... More
Can't agree. It's steep and if it's been raining very slippery. The path is narrow and if busy very tricky in places. Definitely doable but with correct footwear. Hiking boots. Ankle support. Good grip. Not trainers although many do. Popular with runners who were a nuisance on our trip.
Forest. Rocky terrain hill sone steps passing a stream then the hill of the summit which is steep.
