Tinto Hill (2320ft)
Scotland

The Tinto range, sometimes called the "Hills Of Fire" due to their exposed red felsite rock, can be found five miles south of Lanark  in Lanarkshire, Scotland.


Tinto Hill, at 2320 feet, is "Graham" classified (a hill in Scotland that is between 2000-2499 feet high, with a drop of at least 500 feet all round) and is the highest in the Tinto range plus also has the distiction of being the highest hill in Lanarkshire.

The summit provides panoramic views on a clear day of both east and west coasts, south towards the Scotland-England border and north to the Trossachs.

There is some speculation, that the original cairn of stones on the top of Tinto is of Druid origins and local researchers have demonstrated that, during the summer solstice, there is alignment between the cairn on Tinto and a smaller cairn on Walston Hill a few miles to the north of Biggar.

More About Europe

Europe is generally agreed to be the birthplace of western culture, including such legendary innovations as the democratic nation-state, football and tomato sauce.The word Europe comes from the Greek goddess Europa, who was kidnapped by Zeus and plunked down on the island of Crete. Europa gradually changed from referring to mainland Greece until it extended finally to include Norway and Russia.Don't be confused that Europe is called a continent without looking like an island, the way the other continents do. It's okay. The Ural mountains have steadily been there to divide Europe from Asia for the last 250 million years. Russia technically inhabits "Eurasia".Europe is presently uniting into one political and economic zone with a common currency called the Euro. The European Union originated in 1993 and is now composed of 27 member states. Its headquarters is in Brussels, Belgium.Do not confuse the EU with the Council of Europe, which has 47 member states and dates to 1949. These two bodies share the same flag, national anthem, and mission of integrating Europe. The headquarters of the Council are located in Strasbourg, France, and it is most famous for its European Court of Human Rights. In spite of these two bodies, there is still no single Constitution or set of laws applying to all the countries of Europe. Debate rages over the role of the EU in regards to national sovereignty. As of January 2009, the Lisbon Treaty is the closest thing to a European Constitution, yet it has not been approved by all the EU states. Text by Steve Smith.
