Campsie Fells
(2)
Campsie Fells are a range of mountains or rather, hills, of central Scotland, a little north of Glasgow. Along the way there are several viewpoints that allow you to see very far if there is good weather. It is great for hiking. The highest point is Earl's Seat which measures 578 meters high. North of the range is Fintry, and on the east, Killearn. They are two beautiful villates which have accommodation and all necessary amenities. You can legally camp anywhere in Scotland, but you have to leave the place as clean as you found it. The problem obviously is the weather there and, as Campsie Fells is not overgrown, you are not sheltered from the wind. But it's a beautiful place to go walking.

Pap of Glencoe
Glencoe is an interesting town for both its history and its tourist tradition. For the history, check out the official website, and in terms of tourism, I can share a few things with you here. Above the village stands the Pap of Glencoe, a hill with a rounded summit of about 750m. Why Pap? Well, this word in Gaelic refers to the female breast, and the hill gets its name because it looks like a nipple...ah, Scottish poetry! It takes two hours to walk to the top from the village, and you can enjoy beautiful views of Loch Leven and Glen Coe. On a foggy or wet day, you might see the famous Scottish grouse, which wanders the side of the Pap. I admit, spotting the bird comes as a minor consolation when you're soaking wet!
