Common Hill - Wether Hill - Craigentaggert - Glendevon (Frandy) Reservoirs - Common Hill

Justified by superb views to the mountains of the far north, the Earn Valley with Gleneagles Hotel and the readily seen wildlife, this walk is a real taster for wilderness walking. Solitude and isolation prevail and the hard work of the first three hours is eased by the gentle walk home.

There are few significant features on the high moors and photographs all have a sameness, therefore competence with map and compass (and gps if possible) will increase confidence. Navigation is important, especially in poor conditions. The pleasures of this walk would be lost if undertaken in poor visibility. The walk as far as Craigentaggert is demanding. The reservoirs mapped as Upper and Lower Glendevon were known as Frandy Reservoirs and were built by German PoWs during World War I to supply towns in Fife.
