Hill of Stake - Sunny and dry!

Sub 2000s: Hill of Stake

Date walked: 18/03/2021

Time taken: 7.5 hours

Distance: 26km

Ascent: 730m

This walk I summited the tallest peak in Renfrewshire - Hill of Stake. With travel options still limited, it's been a case of scouring maps to see what walks are within the limits. Fortunately the town of Lochwinnoch, the starting point for this walk, was just within 5 miles of the East Renfrewshire boundary.

This walk offers a great sense of remoteness, something I had been longing for recently.
