Landing Zone(s):

There is no formal L.Z. - top-landing only - see 'Notes'

In good conditions ONLY, it is possible to fly-out of the
hills and use Myreton's L.Z. along the A91 (alt. 15m).



Because of tree plantation at the foot of the hill - this site has lost its predominance.

It is still flyable with caution; landings limited to top-landings only on Colsnaur ridge
- or making it all the way to Menstrie / Alva passing either way of Myreton.


Meet & Carpark:

The meeting point is at the top (N) of School Lane (opposite Dumyat Centre).
Cars can usually be parked along School Lane - alternatively use the Dumyat Centre car-park.
No vehicles are allowed uphill on the track - we have lost access.



Access up hill is by the track to Jerah Farm.
After the deer fence - preceding the First Inchna Burn - the land has been changed by plantation.
You need to find your own way up the ridge as this has not been tried and formalised.


Restrictions and Prohibitions:

Tree plantation at the foot of the hill - Top-landing only.

If flying out to the valey during Lambing: flying and landing clear from livestock!
[See: Lambing Restrictions.]
