From Dunblane, head up the Glen Road for nearly a mile, turning left up the Sheriffmuir Road and all the way until you see a large layby on the right. Cross the stile and walk uphill for a mile or so – following the sighs to Dumyat.
After a fairly steepish climb, we (well I) noticed a standing stone a hundred feet or so above the path. A quick detour discovered that it appeared to be part of an Iron Age enclosure – it was huge!
I had one eye on the sun and wanted to get to the hillfort to watch the sunset, I thought it would be a good place to see it. Leaving the others, I hurried on through a bog and up the hill just as the sun was setting – the views were amazing!
How many people have actually watched a golden sunset over the Scottish Highlands from an iron Age hillfort. Just totally memorable.
