The Ochil Hills is a range of hills in Scotland north of the Forth valley bordered by the towns of Stirling, Alloa, Kinross, Auchterarder and Perth.

They’re the hills that give the backdrop to those great national landmarks, the Wallace Monument and Stirling Castle.

These are the hills as kids we would frequent many a weekend with Mum and Dad, roaming free….
