Kinnoull Hill

1 November 2016
Participants: Just me. Ben has had a lump removed from his leg and is not allowed to walk just now.
Where: Kinnoul Hill, 222m/728', Tump, Outside Perth.

What a wonderful autumn day, bright sunshine and wonderful colours, although I reckon that the foliage is now getting past it's best. Kinnoull Hill is part of Scotland's first woodland park and is easily identified by the folly near it's summit, seen by everyone passing on the Perth-Dundee road. This is, of course, modelled on these on the banks of the Rhine. The area is criss-crossed by paths and there are a couple of car parks on the north side of the hill which make the ascent very easy. However, I decided to park in the main car park at the south Inch and walk from there.
The pictures speak for themselves.

One of my favourite summits in Scotland. The nearby Pole Hill has great views as well. Nice autumnal photography. Early November is the new Autumn it seems as the remaining colours are only now reaching full richness of tone. I was out in mid October to capture autumn colour in the parks and it hadn't really got up and running then.

Lovely photos. Murrayshall Hill, in between Kinnoull Hill and Pole Hill, is also worth a walk. - Nice circular route from Scone. Spoiled a bit by monument at top to some old aristocrat who lived to a grand old age, probably on the backs of the poor.
Hope Ben is fit and well soon.

The Sidlaws are definitely worthy of further exploration. I went to school in Dundee and as far as I can remember Lundie was my first hill walk. Never been back but I've put it on my list to do.
