Lewis Hill

26 September 2009

On Saturday we walked up Lewis Hill (266m), a mile-long walk south of Stirling.

There was a major diversion of the traffic due to a wind farm being constructed, resulting in us having to drive the long way around.

At the start of the walk there is a layby large enough for 2/3 cars, but further up the road there is slightly more space to park, which is where we had to go.

The walk starts off through the woodland and has small sections of steep climbs. At one stage you get a good view up the Forth towards Edinburgh and the Pentland Hills. Eventually you come out above the North Third reservoir.

The path to the summit is easy to follow and takes you to a white trig point. We had a reasonably clear views to Ben Ledi, Stuc a'Chroin and Ben Vorlich.
