Out back of Auchterader are some fantastic woodland, would be a great place to camp. Just make sure you don't do it on Joanne Rowlings Gaff. She's been known to send out the keeper and his dogs to run off wild campers.
That's illegal i thought? Mind you it's never good to argue with keepers...

You have taken me back a few years when I walked over the Ochills a couple of times with an old friend who has sadly passed away. His name was John Smith! Lived in Stirling and then Alloa. He climbed all the Monroes. Got us into trouble with police at times when stopped on way home from late parties. "Whats your name son?" er John Smith? Great walk though. He also had me camped on Sherrifmuir to listen to the battle! I must return some time. You are lucky to have that area on your doorstep.

Thanks for sharing and a great name indeed. I do count myself lucky as I'm on these hills regularly but this is only the second time I've camped on them. It won't be the last, hopefully!
