Please check what’s open before you travel; enjoy your visit safely by following NHS and Scottish Government guidance; take your litter home with you; and follow the Scottish Outdoor Access Code.

Explore the wild moors, crags and woods of the Kilpatrick Hills
The grand Scottish Baronial manor of Overtoun House is an ideal starting point to explore the wild moors, crags and woods of the Kilpatrick Hills. You can also marvel at the deep Overtoun Glen from the old bridge, wander through a new native woodland or head higher up towards soaring Lang Craigs for stunning views along the Clyde and out to the open sea.
West Dunbartonshire Council has produced maps for two circuits from Dumbarton that pass Overtoun House. Both pass close by Dumbarton Central and Dumbarton East train stations:
- Overtoun House Circular Path - from Dumbarton (PDF 940KB)
- The Crags Circular Path - from Dumbarton (PDF 1.1MB)
Overtoun House is off the north side of the A82 at Milton, about 2 miles east of Dumbarton. The turning onto Milton Brae is not signposted, so it's worth viewing online before travelling. Drive the full 1 ¼ miles up Milton Brae to find the car park.
G82 2SH is the nearest postcode.
Many bus services stop at Milton, although the 30 minute walk to Overtoun House is up a steep road. Plan your journey at Traveline Scotland.
