Map tip for 'walk of the week'

Taking an Ordnance Survey map is a good idea to help navigate on a modest hill walk in Scotland, it has been noted.

The route in question is the latest Walk of the Week in the Scotsman newspaper, focusing on an ascent of the 282 m (925 ft) Pitcairlie Hill near Abernethy on the border between Perthshire and Fife, with Landranger 58 being the ideal map.

Although not a high point by Scottish standards, the trek offers "superb views to the south" as the path winds its way up through the Pitmedden Forest.

Further on towards the top the views are described as "stunning", stretching as far as Dundee.

Those wanting to climb something higher in Perthshire can enjoy a number of Munros, with higher peaks including the likes of Schiehallion, Carn nan Gabhar and Braigh Coire Chruinn-Bhalgain.

The latter two Munros are in part of Perthshire that was added to Cairngorms National Park last year, the southern limits of the park having previously stopped at the county boundary.
