THE LANGCRAIGS, above Overtoun and Dumbarton.

///imply.potential.steps Overtoun House - first carpark.

///withdraws.equality.prowess Path towards Langcraigs.

The jagged edges of the escarpment overlook Dumbarton. There are great walks up here. The easiest access point is from the Overtoun House carpark. [By car via Milton Brae. Turn off the A82 at Logspan]. As with any walks, select the route that is appropiate to your needs and ability. Don't take risks.

There is an easy route below the cliffs which still gives some nice vantage points (from where this website title photo was taken). For the more adventurous there is a cliff edge walk which includes a scamble down (or up) a fissure. And for those wanting even more exercise there walks up to Black Linn Rerservoir and beyond, perhaps as a circuit.

The Langcraigs now comes under the Woodland Trust. They give more details on their website. 

The first photo was taken from above the craigs. But it is not necessary to go right up for good views as the other two illustrate.
