Scotland in Miniature


The natural area known as "The Campsie Fells" is formed by a series of valleys and hills that connect the districts of Stirling, Glasgow, Dumbarton and Falkirk. This natural park is about 17 miles from each of these cities. Most of the land, hills, mountains and towns belong to the county of Stirlingshire.

The area is advertised as "Scotland in Miniature" since in this small strip you can find everything typically Scottish: mountains, rivers, valleys, castles, clans, lakes, whisky and mythology, but of course, all in a compact area. For example, the Earl's Seat mountain is about 600 meters high and has beautiful views, and the Endrick River runs through the whole territory.

Campsie Fells

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.
