Moncrieffe Hill and two Pictish Forts
This walk has everything, spectacular views to the North over the Highlands, and to the South over the Ochils and Lomond Hills, beautiful woodlands, wood carvings, and two Pictish Forts, one of which has been the subject of archaeological digs over the past few years. Ian, who is leading the walk, took part in one of those digs.

Walk duration - 4/5 hrs Whilst most of the walk is on wide stone surfaced paths with relatively gentle gradients, there are sections of step narrow rough paths which allow access to the two Pictish Forts.
The nature of hill walking potentially involves leaders or other participants in providing close assistance to others. For everybody’s protection those people classified as ‘vulnerable adults’ or young people under the age of 16 must be accompanied by an appropriate carer or responsible adult. No special arrangements are available to provide independent supervision for vulnerable people, and the accompanying carer takes full responsibility for them. The carer or parent is best placed to judge the capability of their charges.
We do ask that you only bring children on a walk if you are confident that they will be able to complete it comfortably. At all times, children must be accompanied by an appropriate adult who must take full responsibility for them.
3. Lower age limits.
No children under the age of 16 are allowed on Extra Hard or Hard walks. Children over the age of 12 are permitted on Medium and Easy walks provided that they are accompanied by a responsible adult.
In common with other similar events and in consideration for others, dogs are not allowed (guide dogs excepted).
Please do not smoke on walks, out of consideration to others.
