North Third and Sauchie Crags Walk
Walks around Stirling
2.5km/1mile. This walking route, above the North Third reservoir in Stirling, should take about 1 hour to complete and is one of the finest cliff top paths in Central Scotland. The North Third reservoir and dam was constructed in 1931 and on a clear day you can see Ben Ledi, Ben Vorlich, Ben Chonzie, the Ochils, The Lomond Hills the Forth bridges, the Pentland Hills and Meikle Bin in the Campsies.
Footpaths are reasonably good but can be slippery after wet weather.
