Dumyat is the rocky little cub of the Ochils, far lower than the main range but packed with character. It has a superb position on the fringe of the range overlooking Stirling and the Central Belt; the views are superb. A perfect first hillwalk on a fine day, this route avoids the very steep slopes on the southern flank of the hill.

Did you know that Dumyat was the capital of a lost Iron Age people, the Maetae, who challenged the Roman Empire? In addition, there’s a deserted farm at Fossakie, a 6000-year old quarry and much, much more!
