Tinto, with its easy access from Glasgow and the central belt, is one of the most popular hills in Scotland when climbed via its main path from the north. This alternative may appeal to experienced hillwalkers looking for a quieter day as it ascends the much steeper and rougher southern slopes.


The approach is across often wet and muddy fields. Higher up on the steeper slopes the path has fallen into disuse and is not clear throughout.

Public Transport

None to start.
