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

 
 

Notes:

Because of the 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 either on the Colsnaur ridge or the saddle to the W of the summit (about 430m asl)
- 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 currently lost access.

 

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 now 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.]
