From the layby next to Dumgoyne distillery. A very nice hill. Alan Moore02/05/2017
A circuit of Dumgoyne and Dumfoyn in a sunny interlude on a dreich weekend. Parked by the distillery.Path over Pipe Track to summit, then along the Earl's Seat path, until a track branches right to Dumfoyn. A steep descent to a path SE then S by a wooded glen to the Pipe Track. Enjoyable providing you could stay upright on steep slippery slopes - which I did most, but not all, the time.Nick Down119/03/2017

Ascended twice on ascent and descent of Earl's Seat in snow. Ascent from distillery a slog, but cloud cleared just as summit reached so great views over Glasgow. Mud made descent potentially hazardous due to being very slippery.quadbarrel21/02/2015
