The Ochil Hills are a long range of steeply sided, round topped hills, stretching 25 miles from the Firth of Tay to Stirling..
There are many peaks over 2,000 ft offering splendid views across central Scotland and to the north. Colourful hill names include Whitewisp, Steele's Knowe, Craigentaggert, The Nebit, Bengengie, and Ben Cleuch which is the highest at 2,363 ft (721 m).
Visible from much of Strathearn, these rolling green hills are the backdrop for the villages of Bridge of Earn, Dunning and Auchterarder. Walkers can choose from a number of interesting lower level options through the glens, splendid individual hills or, for the energetic, enjoy a full traverse across the spine of the Ochil Range from Sheriffmuir to Glen Devon.
The Ochil Hills of Highland Perthshire, Fife and the Trossachs are all clearly visible from the many vantage points throughout the range. The Ochils are accessible from a variety of locations including parts of lowland Perthshire, however most visitors access them from Dollar Glen, Alva Glen and Tillicoultry in Clackmannanshire.
