Conic Hill

Point Of Interest

Has not been rated.


Located on the eastern side of Loch Lomond and also on the Highland Boundary Fault Line, walkers leave the popular village of Balmaha for a short but fairly stiff climb to the top of Conic Hill, 361m high. The rewards come in the expansive views seen throughout the walk and from the top, especially of Loch Lomond and its islands. If you look to the south you can admire the mosaic of farmland and woodland, with field boundaries, trees and shelterbelts, which creates a distinctive and intimate lowland landscape that contrasts with other more rugged parts of the National Park. The path is easy to find and well-trodden. You will reach a false summit before the top proper but you will know when you are there because the vista is spectacular. Below is Loch Lomond and its many islands while further afield youll see the rocky Arrochar Alps and the most southerly Munro, Ben Lomond. The beauty of this hike is that you dont need to go all the way up to take in the generous views, as they will start unfolding at your feet from a third of the way up.
