    "Description

    Whang: Scottish dialect word meaning 'thick slice'. The Whangie is a huge gash in the rocks below Auchineden Hill and has been used by generations of rock-climbers as a training-ground. It has a hidden opening reached via a short clamber up some rocks. Inside The Whangie, a path meanders for some three hundred feet between sheer rock walls fifty feet high. The route climbs to the trig point on Auchineden Hill which provides fine views across to the Kilpatrick hills, Dumgoyne Hill, Loch Lomond, Ben Lomond and the Arrochar Alps. "
