Coronavirus / Covid-19
Following recent changes in government advice regarding Covid-19 to avoid all non-essential travel and maintain social distancing, all walks and other activities are cancelled until further notice.
We will continue to review the situation in line with guidance issued by the government. Further information can be found here, and will be udpated in due course.
Tinto is a prominent grassy hill in South Lanarkshire and is quite high at 711 metres. The ascent is straightforward and is popular with families but is a sustained and steep in places. The views from the summit are stunning on a clear day.
As this is a January walk, there could be snow and ice around so good boots and warm clothes will be essential. We will do a low level alternative if the weather is too bad to go high. About 7Km (4.5 miles). The walk may be extended with a circular walk taking in Lochlyock Hill. (13Km (8 miles). -
The route is steep in places, rough and could be muddy in sections.
