Storm Eunice blew thru on Friday, so OMC Weekend trip to Glen Clova was cancelled. Saturday 19th, picked up Andy Whitehead from Dunblane and met Nicky Creadland at the Craigmead car park for 10am. A few inches of snow had fallen on Friday, but it was blue skies all day. The track was well trodden and lots of kids were sledging around the car park. Back to the car for 14:45. The road up from Falkland was a bit icy and snome cars got into trouble in the afternoon.chillyman819/02/2022
Via the Bunnet stone, then on to East Lomond.Grinner12/02/2022
Parked at walkers Car park by Holl reservoir with a view to doing all 3 Marilyns here. Followed footpaths to East Lomond first and then the standard motorway across to West Lomond. Intention then was to descend into Glen Vale and ascend Bishop Hill to complete the round. Would work but we abandoned at Glen Vale and the weather conditions were becoming more and more miserable.sarahk23/01/2022

With E. Took opportunity of break in weather for an afternoon walk. From Craigmead car park following Walk Highlands recommended route. Good car park, toilets and clear track - what’s not to like. Very quiet. Sunny and clear but gusty winds at summit. Good views of Loch Leven, the Ochils, Firth of Forth, Bass Rock and Arthur's Seat in Edinburgh.Beeliner09/09/2020

East & West Lomond 4 hr circuit from Pillars of Hercules car park with L and the 2 dogs and local friend Bill F -who only had time for East Lomond - going up the N side then down east to the popular high col car park. Here we joined the world and their dogs on this gloomy sunday afternoon on the main path. Our biggest challenge keeping an 'on heat' Treacle away from all the passing dogs! Blasted up the final direct option of steep grass steps up the final summit volcanic plug -to keep ahead of a closing fell runner! Claggy and windy on top but soon down to calmer greyness. Down Mapsie Glen path alongside nicely cut mini gorge in sandstone.Chris Pearson16/08/2020

Fine afternoon's walk from Bonnet Stane under Covid-19 lockdown restrictions. Why had Fife Council decided to rope off the safe parking area? Previously made a circular trip in August 2014, climbing from Bonnet Stane, walking down Glen Vale and cycling back from Glenlomond along Dryside Lane.barnz4821/04/2020
