We will go to the place called Loup of Fintry, which is one of the most spectacular waterfalls of the lowlands of Scotland. It is a place not very well known to public, it is not a tourist visited place, some locals might know it, but is definitely a hidden gem of Scotland. The route to this place takes you through some amazing countryside scenery that is really showing the true Scottish feeling of untouched nature in its raw beauty. <br><br>Once we find the path to the waterfall, we'll go on a short hike on the meadows (might even be greeted by some friendly horses), until we start hearing the roaring sound of the water gushing down the cliffs. It is a spectacular sight even from far. upon arrival to the place, we'll go on an adventure, climbing down and discovering some of the hidden areas of the waterfall, so we can take a closer look and snap some story telling photos that we can show later on to our friends and family.

This is 10 km round trip from Todholes parking lot along the B818 at the end of the reservoir. We went on a very rainy and windy day with a young child of about 8 years (with a lot of hill walking experience) and a grandparent. About 1.5 hours is on a gravel path, and it is only the last 30 minutes that climbs a bit steeper and gets a bit boggier. We made the trip in just under 4 hours - and even without a view was a wonderful experience in nature. Not a difficult walk...recommended for anyone starting out in hill walks with kids. It is also about 40 min from Glasgow so close for a day trip.

We wanted a gentle walk and decided on Meikle Bin due to its location close to Glasgow. The walk is gentle and then a steeper section near the end, the false summits are always good fun. Look out for the remains of a WW2 German airplane near the summit.

The walk up Meikle Bin from the small Todholes car park on the B818, East of Fintry, provides you with one of the finest views in Central Scotland. On the day we visited, the car park was very busy as it was a lovely, clear day. At first, the trail is on a firm, gravel track up a gradual incline. Towards the summit, the trail steepens and you head over the grassy hillside to reach the top where the view opens out. As it was a clear day on our visit we were able to see the Forth Bridges and Edinburgh in the east, south over Lanarkshire and north with a gorgeous view of the snowy tops of some of the more southerly Munros. The walk is approximately 10km and fairly strenuous, but easily within the capabilities of anyone of average fitness. I would recommend wearing sturdy footwear for the walk.
