Walk: Dollar and King’s Seat Hill, Clackmannanshire
This walk - a lovely and gentle introduction to a prominent Ochil peak - leads via the deeply gouged Dollar Glen and up on to the 648m (2,125ft) King's Seat Hill.
The steep southern scarp face of the Ochils in central Scotland stands in sharp relief to the surrounding flat lands, giving these grassy, rounded hills a deserved reputation for drama. Although popular with local hillwalkers, this range is largely neglected by visitors from elsewhere. Come walking here, though, and you’ll find a number of satisfying routes with extensive views and plenty of peace and quiet.
