A walk to Dumyat from Bridge of Allan railway station
Dumyat (pronounced ‘Dum-eye-at’), is a popular hill due to its views over the Forth Valley. Dumyat sits at the western end of The Ochil Hills above Stirling. The name Dumyat comes from dun (or fort) of the Myaetae, the fort of a Pictish tribe that once dominated the area.
10 Miles (16km) 400m assent, 400m decent
Surfaces; woods, open hillside and a short section on country road. There are sections with livestock where dogs must be kept on a lead. The country road is quiet but narrow. We may need to get off the road to let a car pass.
The route has some steep climbs and descents, is rough in parts and could be muddy in sections. It is essential to have waterproof boots, waterproof jacket and trousers, layers of warm clothing and food and water for the day (we will not pass any shops on route.)
People intending to take part in this event should read GOC's document Safety in the Hills.
