Summit of the Doughnot Hill
Summit of the Doughnot Hill
On the skyline, just left of the trig point, is the edge of the Campsie Hills; immediately to the left of that is the edge of the more distant Fintry Hills. The much nearer Duncolm (NS4777) is near the centre of the horizon.
Doughnot Hill
Like many other hills in the area, this originated as a volcanic vent. An igneous dyke runs SW—NE through the hill's north-western slopes. There is a trig point (S5142) on the summit. The name Doughnot Hill is given on OS maps from the first edition (1860) onwards. It also appears, with the same spelling, on the even earlier "Plan of Dumbarton Muir" (undated, but made in the early nineteenth century). It is likely that the name was originally pronounced [ˈdɔxnət] or similar. The Doughnot Burn winds anticlockwise around the northern side of the hill before flowing into the Overtoun Burn.
