Previous section of the route: NS3984 : Loop walk (outward leg) - crossing the clearing.

After crossing the clearing that is shown in that photograph, the footpath through Whinny Hill Woods enters another area of woodland. The present photograph shows the footpath at the point where it enters those woods.

The path leads onwards to a viewpoint with a bench; that viewpoint is located at the summit of Knockour Hill (a point also known as Mount Misery; see below).

Whinny Hill Woodland :: NS3984
A waymarked route, its outlying part in the form of a loop, has been created through this area of woodland. The spelling "Whinny Hill" is the one found on older maps, and it reflects the probable meaning, which is simply a hill covered in whin (gorse). Note, though, that the Woodland Trust (Scotland) tend to call it Whinney Hill; that form of the name also occurs on more recent mapping. Those looking for more information should therefore be aware of the alternative spelling.
