Long Description:

The Lomond Hills are of volcanic origin and are prominent landmarks in the Kingdom of Fife, as well as Kinross-shire too. West Lomond is the highest point, but the summit of East Lomond, three miles to the east is just as prominent and has the advantage of an indicator on its summit. The hill is 424 metres above sea level and sits above the village of Falkland which lies to the north-east.

The indicator was donated by sisters, Mary and Agnes Lumsden, and designed by John Mathieson. It was unveiled on October 6th 1928 and is a bronze disc on a granite column. The disc went missing in 2000, but was recovered and put back in 2004.

The view covers, to the north, the Scottish Highlands, to the east, the fertile Howe of Fife, and to the south, across the Firth of Forth to Edinburgh and beyond to the Southern Uplands. The bulk of West Lomond prevents any lengthy view to the west.

The hill is easily climbed with tracks leading to the summit in various directions, the easiest being from the east where a car park is situated less than 100 metres from the summit.
