Cairnpapple Hill

Cairnpapple Hill stands at a mere 309 m (1,013 ft) and is the highest point in the county of West Lothian. Although comparably tiny from the rest, the hilltop does provide a dominating position in central lowland Scotland, with views stretching from coast to coast. The hilltop is also steep in ancient history where Neolithic and bronze age artifacts have been found.

A road runs close by to the summit with lay-by parking, with a path leading to the summit. The site is open from April to September where a visitor’s centre is located nearby, more details can be found here.
