This walk is situated on an open parallel ridge. These type of ridges are a direct result of the geological activity along the Highland Boundary Fault, which makes the natural and cultural transition between the Highlands and Lowlands.
The walk up this hill starts close to the popular tourist town of Callander on the A81 Glasgow Road.
It comprises a hike upwards from around 60m above sea level to 414m so you should be prepared for a bit of a challenge but the path is good and easy to find.
The rewards come in the breathtaking views from the summit. To the south you will see the Wallace Monument near Stirling, then west to Loch Venachar and Ben Venue, north to Ben Ledi, as well as the Munros Stuc a’Chroin and Ben Vorlich, and east over the rolling Menteith Hills.
