Hillwalking Killearn
- Scottish Walks.


Hillwalking around Killearn. The hills around Killearn are nowhere near to reaching the Corbett and Munro status of the Highlands and Islands but the lowland features here contain a beauty of their own. This picturesque region offers many opportunities for single day trips as most of the walks are only a few miles in distance. Fintry also has easy access from Glasgow and many of the surrounding larger towns such as Airdrie, Alloa, Dumbarton or Motherwell.

 

 Dumgoyne - Stirling

Dumgoyne Hill (427) lies just behind the Glengoyne Distillery on the A81 just before Killearn if travelling from Glasgow. There is roadside parking opposite the distillery and walking about 50 yards from there on the distillery side of the road, you pick up a path near two cottages. Just follow the path through some forestry and you will reach a gate next to a field. Go through the gate (close it) and Dumgoyne comes into view about a quarter of a mile away. Climbing over a stile at the end of the field a path appears to take you onwards and upwards to the summit. The base of the hill can be very boggy, so waterproof shodding is essential. The climb and return should take about 2 hours, with the summit offering splendid views to the mountains in the north and Strathclyde to the south.
