Station to station.
Bedtime reading of Alan Dawson's book provided the inspiration (I know that says something about my life) Cairnpapple hill is one of the few unclimbed in any category I can get to & back in a day using public transport.

A busy road leaving Linlithgow meant I had to jump the dyke and skirt the fields to Beecraigs.
From Cockleroy fallen trees made for an adventurous walk to Cairnpapple via henge.
From trig walked over possible highest point then Knock.
Took a quiet road to Bathgate & train home.
