Touch Muir
The hills above Gargunnock have a stepped appearance. This is due to the basalt flows that make up the hill, each layer laid down in a flood of molten basalt from volcanic fissures. The process can be seen in action today in Iceland.
The hillside is covered in bracken, an invasive weed, hard to remove and destroying a lot of the agricultural value of this fertile hillside.
