The broch of...
Strone Hill car park and trail are closed for improvement works. Alternative similar facilities can be found at Fearnoch.
Thank you for avoiding the area while the work is being carried out.
Strone Hill is a natural resting place for travellers. In the past, drovers watered their cattle here on the long walk to markets in the south. Today it's a peaceful spot to walk your dog and picnic by the river. The trail allows you to stretch your legs alongside the riverbank then takes you to an impressive viewpoint over the River Lochy falls.
This winding trail leads you through regenerating native oak woodland to the edge of the River Lochy and its spectacular waterfalls.
Firm but uneven gravel path throughout. Includes steep slopes and one wide bridge.
Allow 1 hour
The nearest public toilets and other facilities are in Dalmally and Tyndrum.
