Path from the Doughnot Hill
The view is from the summit of the hill. The path gradually swings to the right, leading to the northern corner of NS4477 : The Black Linn Reservoir.

For a view in the opposite direction, looking back up the path towards the hilltop, see NS4477 : Path to the Doughnot Hill.
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.
