Sunday 23rd July  (Shared coach to Old Kilpatrick for both B+ & C+ walks)

THE KILPATRICK HILLS…….DUNCOLM AND THE SLACKS (COACH)

Grade: B+ . Distance: 9 miles; 6 hours. Meet/time: 9am at VUE CP, Stirling for COACH. Map Ref: NS469729.  Description: The Kilpatrick Hills although close to Glasgow give visitors the feeling of a truly wild place. Our ascent is on the good track to Loch Humphrey and as we climb there are fine views of the Erskine Bridge, Dumbarton Rock and the Clyde Estuary. From Loch Humphrey we cross moorland to Duncolm for views over Loch Lomond to the mountains of the north. After retracing our steps to Loch Humphrey our route forks eastwards onto a grassy path to the trig point on the Slacks. This is a sensational viewpoint for much of Glasgow. The walk is on a mixture of good paths and trampled moorland which can be wet underfoot. Ascent 374 m
