The Knock Management Plan
The Knock is a small but distinctive 279m high hill located to the north of Crieff and takes its name from the old Scots word for hillock, which was derived from the Gaelic 'cnoc' meaning hill. The Knock Management Plan [11Mb]covers landscape character and site condition, conservation and ecology, and archaeology.
