In the open upland hills of the area, birds such as skylark, red grouse, breeding waders, buzzards and mammals such as red deer, mountain hare and possibly water vole may occur. These hills form a transitional character between the lowlands and more rugged highlands beyond. The glens around have a sense of remoteness despite their actual proximity to the popular south and west Loch Lomond destinations.
You could choose to simply walk out and back on the same route to Luss or complete a horseshoe circuit of some 12kms taking in another hilltop, Mid Hill, at 623m.
You can find more information about the trail here.
We want everyone to enjoy the National Park in a safe and responsible manner. Be aware that the owners of the land you are crossing might be engaged in deer management and other land management activities and you can help minimise the chance of disturbance. Read more about it in the Heading to the Hills practical guide.
Hiking and hillwalking are risk sports. Always ensure you are prepared before heading out to the hills – information and practical advice on how to stay safe can be found by reading about Safety and skills in the mountains from Mountaineering Scotland.
Loch Lomond & The Trossachs National Park Authority cannot be held responsible for any accidents, injuries or damage sustained whilst hiking in the Park. All persons taking part in such activities do so at their own risk, acknowledging and accepting the risk of accident, injury or damage.
