My first attempt at posting photos :? I will now attempt to update my Diary on Munros done so far next, now I'm getting to grips with the site. Great site when you get used to it :) We had great Views on a sunny day in Fife today.

Nice to see the Lomond Hills for a change. I have family in Glenrothes so I have done both of the Lomond Hills many times. I usually start from from the car park in Pitcairn, Glenrothes near the old reservoir and do the East Hill first before walking across to the West one and then back again. On a clear day, the views from both are stunning.
