Tweed Valley Osprey Project Co-ordinator, Di Bennett, brings us the latest update from the nest.
Covering the slopes of Black Hill above Bridge of Allan, this woodland is a popular spot for runners, dog walkers, and anyone seeking fresh air. Take a short stroll through the sycamore woods around White Hill or use the car park as a base to climb Dumyat Hill.

Pendreich is the starting point for the popular hill path up Dumyat Hill. While the low elevation and great views make this is a perfect first hillwalk, it can get chilly and windy at the top so do go prepared. You can find details of the route at Walkhighlands.
There are public toilets and places to eat in Bridge of Allan or Stirling.
Motorhomes and campervans that are self-contained and have their own toilet facilities will be able to stay overnight at this car park from 1 April – 31 October 2022.
