Hill: Knock Hill
Date: Saturday 8th August 2009
Company: Myself & Becky
I set off early this morning to ascend a wee hill that I have not been up previously, despite it being only 10 minutes from home. My two year-old Becky was keen to come with me to ascend her second Marilyn.
We parked at NJ547554, just past Swilebog.
Knock Hill from Ordiquhill:
The first few hundred metres of the walk is through a nice small wood containing a mix of trees including a number of Rowan trees. Was nice to walk slowly stopping to look at various butterflies, dragonflies and other beasties.
In the woods:
After clearing the wood, the path up the hill is quite obvious.
Looking up Knock Hill:
We stopped plenty of times during the ascent to admire the views.
