Hillwalking Ochil Hills - Scottish Walks.



I spent an excellent spring Sunday doing a few walks in the Ochill Hills, just north east of Stirling. 3 walks took me around 5 hrs, bearing in mind that I had transport to go from one walk to another. The walks were Alva Glen, Mill Glen and the Gartmorn Dam. If you choose to visit the sites my one word of advice is that you try them midweek as they are very popular sat-sun and the car parks at the start fill up quickly. The walks themselves were relatively easy and provided some fantastic vistas for very little effort.

 

Glen Alva

Alva Glen which is heavily wooded and is about a 2 mile round trip starts at the top at the village of Alva in Clackmannanshire.

Glen Mill

Both are well signposted, both are also quite close to each other and both are quite similar to the naked eye, although I prefer Douglas as it has that wee bit more in scenic stature.
