The Campsie Hills - also known as the Campsie Fells - rise above the surrounding towns and countryside stretching from East Dunbartonshire to Stirlingshire. The hills are craggy, steep and rolling with waterfalls, gentle streams and burns in their midst. They seem to hide from modern day life with sheep happily grazing undisturbed on their slopes.
Not far from the city of Glasgow to the north, the Campsies provided a great day out for Glaswegians for a picnic or even to camp overnight or longer. The hills are still a wonderful place to explore for all ages.
The Crow Road rises from the bottom of the Campsies in the town of Lennoxtown up over the hills and down to the village of Fintry. If you park in the car park at the top of the Crow Road you will get a great view across to Glasgow and the surrounding areas – stunning. There are good walking areas in the hills check out
The drive over the Campsies to the village of Fintry is worth doing as it provides even more scenes of beautiful countryside from the top of the hills. Wind turbines are a sight in many parts of Scotland and as you drive down the other side of the hills turbines tower in the distance.
Don’t take our word for it – take a trip to the Campsie Hills!
