Blair Hill (Milnathort)

14 November 2019

Participants: Neil and Ben
Where: Blair Hill, 275m/902', P 41m, Tump, OS 58, NO 107 103

It was a bright early winters day after an overnight frost so I decided to go back to the hills above Milnathort to climb this Tump. The hill has been taken over by an off-road driving school so there are lots of tracks but being a Monday morning it was not in use. I parked in the school's car park. Blair Hill from the car park.....

It was a very simple route, follow a track to the school buildings and another track up the hill. A view to West Lomond.....

The hill overlooks Glenfarg reservoir and it was good today with the snow covered highland hills on the horizon.....

I met the owner on the way down and we had a chat; he said that the hill was the third best viewpoint in Fife and while that might be debatable, it was certainly good. I stopped off at Loch Leven on the way home and had a walk along another part of the loch trail, this time in an anti-clockwise direction from the car park. This bit is away from the water for the most part and the views are not particularly special.
