Solo from the small car park. 1 Hour 35 minutes round trip.bolton26/08/2014
Bonnet Stane car park (185082) SSE along farm track to Bonnet Stane ESE along faint waymarked path to junction with 4x4 track at 199068 Took well-worn path up NE slope to summit. (Solo)gerrybowes28/04/2014
An evening ascent of the steeper northern slopes from the road near Nether Urquhart passing Bonnet Stane, and up the Hoglayers. Clear evening, if a little windy.VirtualMountain16/04/2014
Done in conjunction with Bishop hill. Twelfth day in a row on the hills first one that left me dry at the end! The local authority in their wisdom have tried to put a path diversion through glen Vale due to 'danger of falling rocks'. Elf n' safety at its worse. Obviously i ignored this silly edict and i saw that at the western end of the path somebody had ripped the sign down. Good on them! I urge everybody else to ignore these foolish commands.thenomad25/02/2014
Parking for 4 cars at NO 185082. Interesting walk along the track via the Bonnet Stane, then up the steep path to the summit, returned the same way. Glorious day though a chilly strong wind. Good views.martin_hall03/11/2013
