About

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.

Activities

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:

Getting here

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.
