Starting from the picturesque village of Falkland walking up East Lomond is initially a steep climb up through the woods on steep steps. However two old codgers who are occasional walkers made it to the top in less than an hour so it isn't too difficult. Views from the summit are spectacular looking across the Firth of Forth and north to the Grampians.
Beware while choosing your descent route. Our instructions led us past the trig point on the south slope to the car park beside the telephone masts instead of to the Craigmeed car park adding 2 or 3 km to our walk. Make sure your route down heads toward West Lothian hill.
The path back to Falkland through Mapsie Den is a delight walking behind a waterfall and through a tunnel (beware again, a troll lives here!) then past Falkland House back to the village.
