We had a nice hike up Conic Hill. Sitting at 361m (1,184ft), the hike to the top was just under an hour. With the path clearly marked and good walking space, it was a nice hike. Typical Scottish weather had some rain and some sunshine as well. As we hiked up, we were fortunate enough to get some good and clear pictures. The gradient wasn’t very steep and only one section was filled with log steps.
Getting closer to the top, it was supposed to be a windy day. The forecast was correct as we were getting blown all over the place. Hiking in winds up to 50mph was difficult! We continued to take our time and be careful, making it to the top. Only almost loosing a hat and the rain cove for my backpack. Even with the gusting winds, the views were fabulous. Looking down over Loch Lomond, just couldn’t be beat. It was a great hike up to the top and I was enjoying the challenge of the gusting 50mph winds. After reaching the summit, we continued down to the bottom along another route that followed the spine of the hill. The great views of Loch Lomond continued all the way to the bottom. This was truly and enjoyable short hike.
This is bringing all those Scottish novels to life for me. Always sounded miserably cold and wet….. Guess it was accurate. Sending you some sunshine from AZ, ASAP!!
