Today, I visited Loudon Hill near Darvel in East Ayrshire

Views of the stunning local scenery were aided by dry, sunny weather.

Loudon Hill is a very visible landmark on a relatively flat/undulating landscape. It would appear to be of volcanic origin.

Loudon Hill has a very interesting history, including:

Iron Age settlement

A nearby Neolithic Cairn

A Roman Fort

Battle sites: 1296 (William Wallace); 1307 Robert the Bruce; 1679 (Covenanters).

There are walking trails across/around the site.


This site is well worth a visit. Nearby is the Loudon Castle theme park.
