      Tinto Hill is the graceful cone shaped hill on Lanarkshire’s southern horizon. At 707 metres it is the highest point in central Scotland.

      The best reason for climbing Tinto hill is the excellent view. On the clearest days the view takes in the Lake District, the mountains of Mourne in Northern Ireland, Ailsa Craig and Arran in the Firth of Clyde, the Arrochar Alps and as far north as Lochnagar in the Cairngorms.

      Summit cairn – dating from the Bronze Age it is largest cairn in Scotland. It is tradition to carry a rock from the bottom and place it on the top to keep Tinto growing.
