Continuing the get fit campaign during school hours made this hill a viable option, just an hour there and back from Bo'ness. If we had more time we could have done Bishops Hill too as it looked quite near from the summit. Beautiful part of the country with lots of wild life on the hill and moor. Quite easy although we did end up off route and in the bog before rejoining the path, even went down the glen from the car park to find the waterfall that we somehow missed after East Lomond. Rounded of the trip with a coffee once more in the beautiful village of Falkland. Will have to visit the area once more when time permits.
