Our Groups are up and running with their activities. From the 1st of May we will no longer require advanced booking for most events. Events may still require advanced booking if it is necessary to place a limit on the number of attendees based on the event's risk assessment, or other factors.
A circular walk up Ben Cleuch in the Ochil Hills
Ben Cleuch is the highest hill in the Ochils - a group of grassy rounded hills to the east of Stirling. We will walk from Tillicoultry and take a circular walk of a horseshoe of hills to Ben Cleuch. About 11km (7 miles, 731m of ascent.) If the weather is clear we will have good views over the Forth Valley and north to the higher mountains of the Southern Highlands.
The route has a couple of steep climbs and descents, is rough in parts and it could be muddy in sections after rain. Good boots, waterproof jacket and trousers, some layers of warm clothing may be required, depending on the weather.
The start is accessible by bus from the University rear entrance. Bus timetables are Here.
Terrain / Difficulty
A mountain walk on good mountain paths and tracks. The initial climb up to The Law is sustained but this is the only significant climb on the walk. Grassy Paths on the hill, gravel tracks and good footpaths which could be muddy after rain.
