Duncryne hill, by Gartocharn

Hear pronunciation Press to hear pronunciation

Duncryne, known locally as the Dumpling, is a tiny hill of only 465 feet above sea level. However the very short ascent gives a reward out of all proportion to the effort, revealing a fantastic view of Loch Lomond, dotted with its many islands and backed by the great mountains of the Southern Highlands.


Clear path, steep in parts.

Public Transport
