Nice day today after two miserable days of grey skies, **** rain and strong winds.

Decided to head down to Tiso store at Blackford and kill two birds with one stone by taking the dog for a decent walk en route. Detoured along Glen Devon and scooted up the 456 metre Lendrick Hill.

Parked on the B934 heading for Dunning, just past the back of the Castllehill Reservoir dam wall. Initial steep slopes soon gave way to more gentle aspects leading up to the summit cairn and nearby trig point. Fine views especially to south and east. Minimal bog factor too which was a real bonus! :)

Momentarily thought about continuing over to Innerdouny Hill via Mellock Hill but decided to leave that for another half day filler sometime.
