Conic Hill is a sharp little summit rising above Balmaha, and this is one of the more pleasant routes to the summit.

Features Views

Overview

Conic Hill is a sharp little summit rising above Balmaha. Right on the Highland Boundary Fault, this short hillwalk offers truly fantastic views over Loch Lomond and its many islands.

Description

There is a good path on the ascent, with steps. The detour from the West Highland Way up to the summit involves a short, rocky scramble.
