The peak is also called "Tinto Tap", with the name Tinto possibly deriving from the Scottish Gaelic word teinnteach, meaning "fiery", which may refer to its ancient past as a look out beacon.An old Scots children's rhyme tells of the "kist in the mist" at "Tintock tap", '''' being the Scots word for "chest".It is accessible for walking (moderate to difficult) and is one of the premier locations for hanggliding and paragliding. Tinto is located near the small villages of Thankerton and Wiston.Tinto is also the venue for one of the most popular hill running races in Scotland which is held annually in November.Artistic RecognitionTinto Hill was painted by John Pairman in 1841.
