We are restarting some events with the easing of lockdown restrictions.
Walks can once again take place in England, Scotland and Wales, and will be run in accordance with local regulations. In most cases our walks will allow for a maximum of 30 participants, although a lower limit may be in place following an event's risk assessment. All walks require every participant to pre-book via the website.
Dollar Glen and King's Seat Hill
A hill walk from the pretty small town of Dollar, about 12 miles (30 minutes drive) from the university. 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).
About 6 miles (10km) (about 5-6 hours). Max elevation 648 meters. This is a hill walk, so it could be cold on the summits, good boots, waterproof jacket and trousers, hat and gloves may be needed.
Terrain / Difficulty
A difficult walk with some steep climbs and descents. Good paths on the whole, open moor/grass hillsides. The paths through Dollar Glen are mostly protected by handrails, but some are not and will require care
