Set the alarm early to get the best of the weather and went for a longer, but lower level walk, as the wind was predicted to be blowy today.

Reviewing some of the reviews on here I decided to try Deuchary Hill as well as the numerous lochs and reservoirs nearby.

The walk pretty much follows farm tracks most of the way apart from the section between Mill Dam and Deuchary Hill which gets you walking through gaps the in fern.

Recommend set off early if you want to see loads of deer roaming about, lovely to see.

All in all a good walk and recommend if you want something with distance, a decent view from the top, and a number of lochs to dip your toe in.

Some snaps below.
