Restarting Events

We are restarting some events with the easing of lockdown restrictions.

General information

Dollar Glen and King's Seat Hill

A hill walk from the pretty town of Dollar.  The walk climbs through the narrow defile of Dollar Glen before emerging on the open hillside and climbing quite steeply to the summit of Bank Hill.  From there, the gradient eases somewhat, but it is quite a long climb to the summit of King's Seat at 648 metres. Its down hill from here, dropping into the Glen of Sorrow, which we follow back down to Dollar Glen and Castle Campbell (charge for entry if you wish to visit).  There is the option to extend the walk over Tarmangie Hill (645m) and Whitewisp Hill (643m) if we want to.

About 7 miles (11km - about 5 hours for the short route option).  Max elevation 648 meters. This is a fairly easy mountain walk and a good introduction to hill walking.  It could be cool on the summits, good boots, waterproof jacket and trousers, hat and gloves may be needed.

 

Terrain / Difficulty

A moderate mountain walk with some steep climbs and descents. Good paths on the whole, open moor/grass hillsides. The narrow paths through Dollar Glen are mostly protected by handrails, but some are not and will require care
