Time: 1.5 hours
Start at the top left corner of the Greenock Cut visitor centre carpark and go over the stile, follow the informal trail up the hill. Alternatively you can go straight up or follow the zig zag trail to the right. At the top of the slop turn right to reach the summit cairn of ‘Hillside Hill0 (297m). Head west to the gate in the fence line before heading up to the trig point of Dunrod Hill (298m). From the trig point head north east downhill to the metal field gate where you will join a wee path, then jump the burn to follow the reservoir track. At the junction go straight on to the telephone mast at scroggy bank. Follow the track downhill, keeping the mast to your left. Take a sharp right onto the loose gravel of the ‘Overton Track’. Loch Thom will be on your left and the visitor centre straight ahead.
Terrain: Steep grassy section, open moorland, rough tracks and tarmac.
What to Bring: A camera to capture the the stunning views.
