    View NE from monument

    One of many fantastic views from the Lomond Hills. This is the view North East from the Tyndall Bruce Monument. On a good day from high on the Lomonds you can see the Cairngorm mountains100miles to the North.

    Tyndall Bruce Monument

    by Whitevanman Written May 12, 2006
    Tyndall Bruce monument - Lomond Hills

    This monument was erected in memory of Onesipherous Tyndall Bruce who died in 1855, whom together with his wife Margret were largely responsible for the development of Falkland in to the village as you see it today. The monument on the BlacK Hill between East and West Lomond can be seen for miles around. Although it remains somewhat tricky to reach requiring at least a mile hike uphill from nearest road. As from anywhere high on the Lomonds the views are stunning.

    East Lomond and Tyndall Bruce Monument

    The Lomond hills dominate the skyline of Central Fife. On the far left of this photo you can see the East Lomond better known locally as Falkland hill. An extinct volcano which has also seen its summit crowned by a Pictish fort. On the top right of the photo is the Black hill with its monument to Onesipherous Tyndall. Although his wife Margaret Bruce was the real money behind the marriage and through her inheritance he became hereditary keeper of Falkland Palace in the early 19th c.
