North Third Reservoir.Lewis Hill Walk.
It was only when I looked at the excellent photos on a fellow bloggers site,(Inflatable boat journeys from around Scotland) that I realised its potential for views and outlook were better than I thought so thanks to Donny for a new walking route.
A bright Sunday dawned a couple of weeks ago so I thought it was time to have a look myself.
This hill sits to the west of Stirling on the Campsie uplands,a high plateau of rough grassland and rolling hills,perfect for a cycling tour over the minor roads if you don't mind a few steep hill climbs.
The plan was to park on the highest point of the minor road near the crags where there are a couple of laybys then walk north along the top of the crags,returning via the dam and Greathill. (a farm)
Views north showed a landscape of high grassland and moor.Its not a place to walk or cycle in bad weather unless you like it grim.Some do I believe but I,m not one of them.
