The Dumyat weekly walk, near Stirling, central Scotland



Every Wednesday a varying bunch of us meet up about 1730 to have convivial walk up the Dumyat. Depending on need/inclination/ability we either press on hard or saunter up, enjoying the stunning views over Stirling and the Forth Valley. It's a nice undulating walk which all fitness levels can accomplish.

  • The best bit is that no matter how many times we do it, and there are really only 2 variables (the "High" and the "Low" paths), we never tire of it.
