Lots of campers
Summit one reached, Bank Hill with a view to Kings Seat
A very clear path from Bank HIll to Kings seat, very straightforward
Summit 2, Kings Seat
Looking on to our next target, Tarmangie, I was dreading this ascent but it wasn't as bad as it looked
Looking back to King's Seat
A nice gentle looking path to Whitewisp
Views over to the Glendevon area
Summit view from Tarmangie
Looking back to Tarmangie
The walk over from Tarmangie to Whitewisp was the easiest section of the day. Summit of Whitewisp
Heading down to the final summit of the day, Saddle Hill
Views over to Fife from Saddle HIll
The last section of this walk down from Saddle Hill was not enjoyable at all. The ground wasn't great for walking and there was no path. At the end of a long walk it was very tiring.

We were staying in Falkirk recently and could see the Ochils from our hotel. They look really nice, even when covered in a light mist. Even better when driving under them towards Tillycoultry. Really need to make an effort to head down that way and walk them.
Looks like you've had a nice day out there Sarah and Sis. Lovely photos as usual. Whats the castle in the last photo?
