Duncolm and the Slacks, Old Kilpatrick

The steep grassy dome of Duncolm rises above the moors as the highest point of the Kilpatrick Hills. Although close to Glasgow it feels like a wild place and is a popular objective. This route from Old Kilpatrick is easily reached by public transport; the return given is via the Slacks which has superb views over the city.


Tarmac lane and good track to Loch Humphrey. The rest of the walk is on grassy paths with many boggy patches.
