Did this walk Monday evening taking the windfarm track with last wee bit to the summit on a grassy track. Returned the same way. A nicer route would be from Glendevon and the path through Borland Glen.

Hmmn, this is the hill me and my dog were attacked by cattle on, we were very lucky to get out of that scrape, but it took me 2 days to find the dog, hills are so much bigger when you are looking for something kinda wee on them, so I know every inch of this blinking hill. Having said that, looks like new windfarm tracks, I wont be going back to have a look... :lol:

Good photos you had there JC, think I'll need to go there and have my round 2 with the turbines after my Bowbeat Hill walk right under them!

It is probably the least exciting top in the Ochils, but I'm very glad I got round it before the turbines arrived - they don't seem to add to this one.

This seems to have been a popular wee hill lately. Will need to make sure I get to the top the next time, although slightly cautious after hills encounter with the cows although, no sign of any when we were on route.

Sarah86, there were no signs of any cows when I did this hill, nor evidence of same :lol: I think you will be ok with the dog. I don't know which starting point 'Hills' started from.
