Dundurn – St. Fillans Hill

The rocky knoll of Dundurn might only be 112m high but it packs in a great deal of interest, both historic and scenic.

A short walk to the summit starts from the village of St. Fillans at a stone bridge over the River Earn, at the eastern end of Loch Earn.

A path is easy to find and is only steep for a short ascent of the actual knoll. En route to the top you can visit a burial ground and the remains of St. Fillan’s Chapel, dating back to the 1300s.

At the flat hilltop there was once a Pictish Fort, although little can be seen today. A stone to the west side of the summit is known as St Fillan’s Seat. Return on the same path to avoid sheer rocks on most sides of the hill.
