Weekday Walkers

The next outing of the Weekday Walkers will be to Lewis Hill and North Third Reservoir near Stirling on TUESDAY 26 NOVEMBER.

We'll meet at the North Third northerly parking area (GR 771907) at 10am. Click the pic for a map of the area showing how to get there from the Stirling exit off the M80....

North Third Reservoir

If anyone requires a lift, or to car share, please let me know and I'll arrange to meet at the Linn Park Golf Course Car Park in Simshill Road (corner of Linnview Avenue .. G44 5EP for satnavs) at 9am.

Andrew Dempster describes the route in his book "The Hughs" ....

"This fine craggy and wooded hill is the high point of a long rocky escarpment lying to the east of North Third Reservoir to the southwest of Stirling. A traverse of the escarpment and a circuit of the reservoir make an excellent circular route with wonderful views."

** UPDATE ** I can confirm that this route does NOT involve grouse moor conditions of waist-deep heather. There are some muddy bits and a few slippy tree roots, but nothing that can't be coped with ....

Distance is about 10 km, with a total ascent of about 250m .. likely time is 3-4 hours ....

Lewis Hill

** UPDATE ** The Brewers Fayre Pirnhall Inn is just before the big motorway junction roundabout on the way back .. marked as "PH Motel" on the map. It's pretty good for something to eat, or just for a drink or coffee ....
