PAPPERTWELL WOODLAND & PAPPERT STONE, Pappert Hill above Bonhill

Access : On foot from O'Hare Road. 

///reflector.engage.encroach Pappert Well.

///angry.embarks.february Pappert Stone.

No one is absolutely sure where Pappert's Well actually is, but a contender is a sizeable hole in the thick grass of the walk up the hill from the outer sweep of Pappert road. Water flows discreetly, but freely within it. This one certainly looks like a well, but it has been disturbed by forestry and you can find other places were water seeps from the hillside.

There are other access points onto the slopes beyond New Bonhill and into the heather and woodland. 

Some websites refer to both foot and cycle access, but the path can be both firm or boggy. 

The vegetation varies from gorse and heather to plantation. In a clearing and on a slight rise is Pappert Stone, a natural outcrop, and a good target for a walk. Paths converge on it. 

The well itself usn't much to look at .......

....... but it is a nice walk and the views are great.
