West Ochil ramble from Alva Glen CP. Round of Nebit, Ever, Craighorn, Blairdenon, Bengengie and Leith.Topographer5731/10/2019
Round of Craig Leith, Bengengie, Craighorn and The Nebit, easy along paths to Bengengie which has fine crags.Thearlaichdubh08/09/2019
Up the stunning Alva Glen from the car park, crossing on to the west side and a steep climb to Mid Cairn. Pleasant grassy path to Bengengie Hill then a boggy crossing of the Balquhain Burn to a stone wall. A path on the west side of this wall leads straightforwardly to Colsnaur Hill then down to Myreton Hill. A SE descent over grassy hillocks eventually brought us to an ATV trail, which led down to a builders yard (I think) then Back Road. The walker friendly Back Road leads straight back to Alva Glen car park. 3 hours in total.summitter01/09/2019

From Mid Cairn, then across the trackless but dryish expanse to Blairdenon.Pete R21/04/2018
From Coalsnaur hill. Walk could've been extended via Blairdenon Hill if time and inclination had permitted. Really steep sides to the Balquharn Burn, so the further you go north the less descent and re-ascent is required.Minto22/06/2017
Parked in Menstrie then up track before going off-piste to avoid gate and plantation to Myreton Hill. Then steeply down beside fence to climb back up to Colsnaur Hill, climbing a handy style halfway up. Then across to Bengengie Hill before descending the ridge to Mid Cairn [Craig Leith]. Then down to the sheepfold and across the dam back towards Menstrie with Jonathon, Norman, Nigel and Gavin.Dugswell222/06/2017
