Conic Hill

Conic Hill is a particularly popular part of the West Highland Way, with people climbing up the hill to enjoy the amazing views over Loch Lomond. However, this many feet on the path does cause erosion and the Loch Lomond & The Trossachs National Park is starting work on a maintenance project to repair the path in autumn 2022. It will be a big task over c.3 years to carry out the upgrades, costing over £600,000.  If you want to support the work so that it can be completed more quickly, please make a donation today:
