Doughnot Hill :: Shared Description

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.
