The image below is from the Glengoyne Distillery car park looking at Dumgoyne Hill. The hiking trail goes up through the field just right of the distillery, as seen below.

This is a steep little hill that is extremely popular for snow hiking in winter, as it is right next to a main road. There can be about 2 feet of snow on this hill at times.
