Myot Hill

A prominent little summit in W Falkirk, Myot Hill rises to 212m (695 feet) a half-mile (1 km) west southwest of Fankerton and 1½ miles (2.5 km) west of Denny. There is a triangulation pillar on the summit and the poorly-defined remains of a hill-fort surround this. Once protected by two concentric ramparts, this fort was thought to have been a stronghold of a Pictish tribe called the Maeatae, who made treaties with the Romans but later rebelled against them. A collection of transmitter masts lie close to the summit of Myot Hill. Geologically the hill represents a dolerite sill.
