Conic Hill

Hiking Highlight

Recommended by 33 out of 34 hikers


  • Chris

    If you're headed northbound along the West Highland Way, Conic Hill is your first challenge as its role as guardian to Loch Lomond below. Peaking at 361m (1184 feet), the walk up from the east is extremely steep with a gradient as high as 24%.

    Tough it out however and you'll be rewarded with beautiful views over Loch Lomond, and on a clear day, you might even catch a week peak of Ben Lomond, Scotland's southernmost Munro.

    An exhausting climb, but rewarding views from Conic Hill to Loch Lochmond. Definitely take anti-midge remedies, it just teems with the critters

    Wonderful view from above Loch Lomond and into the wide valley in the south.

    Beautiful view of Loch Lomond and the Highlands. Especially for hikers of the 'West Highland Way' makes a nice prelude to the desire for the following days.Sometimes it can be a bit crowded, as many day trippers from Balmaha also venture the climb.
